Sutton completes Infiniti run out

Former British Touring Car champion Ash Sutton tested the Laser Tools Racing Infiniti last week as the talented young gun was drafted in to provide additional feedback to the squad.

“I was really impressed with the Infiniti – there is certainly lots of potential with that car,” said Sutton. “I think the Laser Tools guys just wanted a benchmark and I was keen to try and help out.”

Laser Tools Racing launched its rebuilt rear-wheel-drive Infiniti Q50 at Snetterton during the summer, and the machine has since been put through its paces by regular pilot Aiden Moffat.

The Scotsman produced eye-catching displays at both the Norfolk venue and again at Thruxton recently, but the team also wanted to draw upon Sutton’s extensive RWD experience.

“The ingredients are in the car to make it a force, and it is just a question of unlocking the speed from it,” concluded Sutton. “They will certainly make progress over the latter part of the year.”

Three-time race-winner Moffat and the rest of the 2019 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship grid will be back on track at Knockhill for Rounds 22, 23 and 24 in just over a week’s time (14/15 September).
