Off the back of a three-year stint in karts, Aiden Moffat graduated to Junior Banger racing in 2010 in his native Scotland – to considerable acclaim. The teenager then stepped up to the Ford Fiesta Junior Championship and Scottish Ford Fiesta Championship, narrowly missing out on the 2013 laurels in the latter after claiming no fewer than nine victories from the last ten races. He also competed in the Celtic Speed Mini Cooper Cup, and made a one-off appearance in the 2012 Ginetta Junior Championship finale with RPM Motorsport at Brands Hatch.
Aged just 16 years, ten months and 28 days, Moffat created history in 2013 by becoming the youngest driver ever to enter the BTCC when he made his debut in a Finesse Motorsport-run Chevrolet Cruze on home soil at Knockhill, competing in the Jack Sears Trophy for S2000 cars. He switched to Team HARD’s Volkswagen CC for Silverstone and Brands Hatch and notched up his first points-scoring finishes, before returning in 2014 in a Laser Tools Racing Chevrolet Cruze.
The squad switched to an all-new Mercedes A-Class for 2015, run by Ciceley Motorsport, and Aiden celebrated a popular maiden top three finish in front of his partisan supporters at Knockhill. The young Scot continued with Laser Tools Racing in 2016 and produced his best BTCC season yet by a margin of some 50 points, rounding off in style with P2 in the finale.
In 2017, once again competing under the Laser Tools Racing banner, Moffat went one better still. Not only did the Scot finished a place higher in the Drivers’ standings in13th, but he managed to secure a maiden victory early in the campaign at Donington Park. To add to this, he rounded off the season with a second win in the BTCC with a stellar drive at the famous Brands Hatch GP circuit.
He returns for 2018 with Laser Tools Racing.
