STARLINE RACING BY ONE MOTORSPORT ANNOUNCES COOK AND MOFFAT FOR 2023 BTCC
One Motorsport – formerly BTC Racing – has today (15 February) announced that Aiden Moffat and reigning Independent Drivers’ Champion Josh Cook will be racing under the Starline Racing by One Motorsport banner in the 2023 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.
The news will see the pair of multiple BTCC race winners pilot the team’s Honda Civic Type Rs for the upcoming campaign, with the Brackley-based outfit also revealing the machines’ new looks for 2023.
Having secured five victories in 2022 – the second-highest tally of all drivers on the grid – Cook will be aiming to build on a strong campaign, while his team-mate makes the switch from the rear-wheel drive Infiniti aiming to hit the ground running this year.
The new partnership with Starline powered by LKQ Euro Car Parts coincides with a major expansion for the reigning BTCC Independent Teams’ Champions, on the back of the recent rebranding of BTC Racing to One Motorsport.
“We’re thrilled to announce the rebranding and delighted to rejuvenate our BTCC line-up and welcome Aiden in, whilst re-signing Josh was an incredibly important step,” said Team Principal Danny Buxton. “Aiden is a class act and I feel he has yet to reach his potential. I’m confident with the support network we’ll provide, he’ll be a front-runner from day one. Josh is raring to go and we’re pushing extremely hard to ensure he has all the winning tools. Together with the exciting Starline LKQ Euro Car Parts partnership, we’re ideally positioned for all challenges in BTCC racing,”
“I’m really happy to be signed with Starline Racing by One Motorsport for the 2023 BTCC season,” proclaimed Moffat. “Seeing how competitive they were in the Honda Civic FK8 gives me a massive buzz that I just didn’t have last year. A massive thanks to Steve Dudman, Danny Buxton and Will Powell for making this all work.
“Despite spending so much time in the BTCC, this is the most comfortable I have felt going into a season. Racing is a bit like business, you want to deal with the right people and that’s what we now have for this year with One Motorsport and our new as well as existing partners who are supporting this fantastic opportunity.”
“We’re excited to be teaming up with One Motorsport for the 2032 BTCC,” added Colin Cottrell, Marketing Director at LKQ Euro Car Parts. “We are very much looking forward to seeing what One Motorsport, Aiden and Josh can do in the forthcoming season as part of the Starline Racing team.”
