Actor Fletcher joins the BTCC 2016 line-up
Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher will step up to British Touring Cars this season at the wheel of a Power Maxed Racing Chevrolet Cruze.
The 32-year-old, who has previously raced on the BTCC support package, in Porsches, will join Hunter Abbott in the front-wheel-drive cars.
Fletcher said: “Signing with such a solid team as Power Maxed Racing will no doubt make the transition to the BTCC a smooth one. I have watched the BTCC for a long time: it has been a lifelong dream to race against my childhood heroes.”
BTCC race winner Aron Smith and Clio graduate Mark Howard are due to join the grid in two Team BKR VWS as well.
