Proctor completes PMR line-up
Power Maxed Racing has today announced that Senna Proctor will remain with the team for the 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
The 19-year-old, who secured the prestigious Jack Sears Trophy with five rounds of the 2017 season left to run, will join new team-mate Josh Cook, who himself is a Jack Sears Trophy winner – securing the honours back in 2015, also with PMR.
A year of data is now in the bag with the squad’s Vauxhall Astra, and a regular top ten finisher in Proctor rejoining the fold, the Warwickshire-based team are confident of success when the season kicks off this April at the season opener at Brands Hatch.
“Continuity is key for any race team, and we’re delighted to have secured Senna for his second consecutive season in the car,” said Team Manager Martin Broadhurst. “The team have been working incredibly hard throughout the winter months to ensure Senna stayed with us for 2018, and hopefully beyond. The fact we’ll have two Jack Sears Trophy champions, who’ve both won with us, is the icing on the cake.”
“We are well aware of Senna’s ability,” said Team Principal Adam Weaver. “He is still only 19 and developed superbly as a driver during last season. 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.”
Senna Proctor added: “It’s great to be staying with Power Maxed Racing for the forthcoming season. 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.
“Last year was a fantastic year for all of us, and with the work Martin Broadhurst and the team have been putting in, as well as 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.”
In their continued efforts to further nurture young motor sport talent, PMR have formed a two-way partnership with fledgling Renault UK Clio Cup team, Matrix Motorsport, for 2018 and beyond.
Headed up by Senna Proctor, this initiative will give Matrix Motorsport drivers and sponsors the opportunity to get a taste of the touring car paddock from the inside, and create a defined route into BTCC.
PMR will reveal the 2018 livery of its Vauxhall Astra at BTCC Season Launch, taking place at Donington Park on 27 March.
