Laser Tools Racing has confirmed that Aiden Moffat will be racing with the outfit in the 2019 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, and the young Scot is confident of converting promising pace into further podiums as he and the outfit step up preparations for the campaign ahead.
Moffat sealed a race victory at Silverstone and another couple of podiums at Donington Park. Over the off-season, the Dalkeith driver has a renewed focus on personal development as he looks for consistency.
“I’ve never felt more excited at the prospect of a new BTCC season as I do this year,” said the 22-year-old. “On a personal level, I’ve been concentrating on both my physical and mental fitness – I went to the gym three times yesterday! I’ve never been more focussed and determined.
“There are also significant changes to our Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which we’ve been working on since the close of the 2018 season. We’ve now moved the preparation and development of the car to our new Laser Tools Racing facility in Scotland.
“Yes, we’ve broken ties with Ciceley Motorsport, but they have been a great assistance with the transition. We have built an all-new facility which gives us the engineering and preparation capability together with full bodyshop and painting, which means that we can also offer customers full race car preparation and repair.
“For me, it’s great to be involved in the nuts and bolts of the race car preparation. Our A-Class has been stripped down to a bare-metal shell, then completely rebuilt from the ground up. The fresh design of the new livery looks fantastic and I can’t wait to see it finished.
“With the changes for 2019, I’m confident that we will be real championship contenders.”
