Off the back of a three-year stint in karts, Aiden Moffat graduated to Junior Banger racing in 2010 in his native Scotland – to considerable acclaim. The teenager then stepped up to the Ford Fiesta Junior Championship and Scottish Ford Fiesta Championship, narrowly missing out on the laurels in the latter after claiming no fewer than nine victories from ten starts.
Aged just 16 years, ten months and 28 days, Moffat created history in 2013 by becoming the youngest driver ever to enter the BTCC when he made his debut in at Knockhill, competing in the Jack Sears Trophy for S2000 cars. He switched to Team HARD’s Volkswagen CC for Silverstone and Brands Hatch and notched up his first points-scoring finishes, before returning in 2014 in a Laser Tools Racing Chevrolet Cruze.
The squad switched to an all-new Mercedes-Benz A-Class for 2015, run by Ciceley Motorsport, and Moffat celebrated a popular maiden top three finish in front of his partisan supporters at Knockhill. Continuing with Laser Tools Racing in 2016, he produced his best BTCC season to-date by a margin of more than 60 points.
In 2017, Moffat went one better still. Not only did he finish a place higher in the Drivers’ standings in 13th, but he managed to secure a maiden victory early on in the campaign at Donington Park. He signed off the season with a second BTCC win following a stellar drive on the famous Brands Hatch GP circuit.
For 2019, Laser Tools Racing ran the A-Class before switching to the Infiniti Q50 for the second half of the campaign. The car finished runner-up in Moffat’s hands at Silverstone later in the year.
The Scot is aiming to benefit from consistency in 2020 as he continues with the team and the Infiniti Q50.
