Moffat returns with Laser Tools Mercedes
Aiden Moffat has confirmed that he will return to the British Touring Car Championship in 2017 at the wheel of the Laser Tools Racing Mercedes-benz A-class.
The 20-year-old Scotsman took a career best second place in the final meeting of the 2016 campaign at Brands Hatch as he finished 14th in the standings, and he placed fifth in the battle for the Independents Trophy.
“Touring cars is where we’re going to stay,” said Moffat, who has recently tested some GT4 and GT3 sportscars. “It’s a fantastic championship and as a team we’re constantly improving.
“We’ve also improved our Mercedes a lot over the 2016 season and we’ve got a lot of development planned before the 2017 season starts. I’ve had a full year now with race engineer Federico Turrata and we have a definite bond — we know how each thinks — and this has shown in race results.”
The Laser Tools Racing car is operated by Ciceley Racing and is a sister machine to the A-class of Adam Morgan.
Moffat hasn’t ruled out dovetailing his BTCC campaign with some outings in British GT in 2017, although he has yet to firm up details.
Moffat will stick with the A-class
