Power Maxed Racing confirms BTCC entry
Chris Stockton will race a Chevrolet Cruze under the Power Maxed Racing banner in this year’s Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship after his squad sealed a partnership with the vehicle cleaning and additive brand.
The team will be racing an RML designed and powered Cruze Hatchback, the only one in existence, with an all-new Power Maxed Racing livery. The new title sponsor is part of the Automotive Brands group, which has already been heavily involved with the BTCC having backed Tom Onslow-Cole with its Steal Seal brand, before Power Maxed powered Aiden Moffat’s switch to a VW Passat late in 2013. While Power Maxed Racing is a spin off from its core business activity, the brand has committed 50% of all Power Maxed profits into sponsorship and youth development in motorsport moving forward.
Cheshire-based Stockton and his BTC Racing squad have been hard at work for a number of months preparing the car for the new season and the team has confirmed that the machine will be ready to make its public debut at the BTCC Season Launch on 18 March at Donington Park.
“It will be great to be back in the BTCC and in a car that has the reliability and power to give the front runners a run for their money,” said Stockton. “I’m thrilled to be working with Power Maxed Racing – both of us have worked tirelessly to create a true partnership and a great platform that will perform on the track but also provide a fantastic marketing platform for Power Maxed.”
Adam Weaver, Managing Director of Automotive Brands, owners of the Power Maxed brand said: “We have had a lot of experience with motorsport and Touring Car sponsorship and know that Chris and his team are the best people to work with in 2014. They have a great car produced by a proven manufacturer in RML and have acquired a fantastic hospitality unit. To top it all off we have been so impressed by the professionalism and desire of not only Chris, but all of his team to be the best, which is also the ethos behind the Power Maxed brand.”
