Moffat targets BTCC assault
“We have examined the car and evaluated it to the finest degree,” said team owner Bob Moffat. “It is clear that this can be a very competitive car with further development from the team and Aiden. We think that it is the ideal base for the team and that Aiden will show people what he is all about next year.”
Aiden became the youngest driver in British Touring Car Championship history earlier this year when he contested his home round at Knockhill in a S2000 Chevrolet Cruze. He then went on to make his NGTC debut, driving a VW Passat with Team HARD, in the final two rounds of the season. He scored championship points at both Silverstone and Brands Hatch, and now the 17-year-old is focussing even further up the field.
“There is no point me turning up to run at the rear of the field,” he said. “I only race to win, and I hope to do that at some point in the Cruze – it is a fantastic car.”
Winning is exactly what Aiden has been doing in recent times having closed out the Scottish Fiesta championship in fine style by claiming victory in nine of the last ten races, on his way to finishing second in the standings. His rapid rise looks set to thrust him into Britain’s premier motor racing series on a regular basis while his new found fame will see him become the Daily Mirror and Daily Record’s online BTCC columnist for the 2014 season.
