Power Maxed Racing have confirmed reigning Jack Sears Trophy champion Senna Proctor will remain with the outfit for the 2018 British Touring Car Championship season.
The outfit confirmed the returning Josh Cook at the Autosport International Show last week, with Proctor’s unveiling completing their two-car Vauxhall Astra assault on the UK’s headline tin-top series.
19-year old Proctor was prolific in securing the coveted rookie honour last season, taking the crown with five rounds to spare alongside a best overall finish of sixth in the finale at Brands Hatch in October.
The regulations for that honour have been amended ahead of the championship’s 60th Anniversary season, with all drivers yet to score a podium finish now eligible to compete.
As part of the same announcement, PMR have unveiled a partnership with Renault UK Clio Cup outfit Matrix Motorsport, and will unveil an amended livery to their machines at the Season Launch, scheduled to take place at Donington Park on March 27th, 2018.
“It’s great to be staying with Power Maxed Racing for the forthcoming season,” commented Proctor.
“We’ve been working hard together through the winter to strike the right deal, and you can’t put a price on having confidence in both the car and the team behind it.
“2017 was a fantastic year for all of us, and with the work Martin Broadhurst and the team have been putting in, and having Josh Cook as a team mate, I’m confident 2018 will be our year! I’d like to thank my existing sponsors, LAPD, Bee Health and Proctor Plant for the continued support.”
“We are well aware of Senna’s ability. He is still only 19 and developed superbly as a driver during last season,” asserted PMR Team Principal, Adam Weaver.
“With a year in the car under his belt and a winter of hard work we expect him to be very strong in 2018.
“I believe we have secured the most exciting lineup in the Championship with two of the past three Jack Sears Trophy winners and cannot wait for the season to start.”
