Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

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.
