In partnership with Motorbase Performance – which built the race-winning Ford Focus – Dextra Racing made its debut in the BTCC in 2015, fielding a car run by successful GT and Porsche Carrera Cup GB squad Team Parker Racing.
The Leicestershire-based outfit initially earned its reputation for its many championship wins in Caterhams – an impressive record that is reflected in its status today as the company responsible for Caterham’s corporate work. This extends to track days, drift days, slalom days, technical support and looking after customers.
Team Parker Racing, based in a 5000 square-foot workshop, also undertakes specialist Porsche road car work and runs drivers in the GT Cup and VLN endurance series in Germany, the highlight of which is the famous Nurburgring 24 Hours on the legendary Nurburgring Nordschleife circuit.
In 2015, Alex Martin had a solid rookie season in the BTCC, breaking into the points at Rockingham in September. He returned for 2016 but with changes behind the scenes at the outfit, he has been replaced by Stephen Jelley for 2017. Maximum Motorsport joined the field in 2016, with past experience garnered in the Volkswagen Racing Cup and VAG Trophy, in addition to the Renault UK Clio Cup, which it entered midway through 2015 with cars for title contender Ant Whorton-Eales and Tom Witts.
Having purchased an ex-AmDTuning.com Ford Focus ST, the Midlands-based outfit fielded series sophomore Stewart Lines in 2016.
An injury to Lines in the off-season gave rise to Maximum Motorsport joining the Team Parker fold as Team Parker with Maximum Motorsport.
Josh Cook was chosen as the driver to push the outfit on in 2017 driving the sister, Maximum Group-liveried Ford Focus.
