SENNA PROCTOR RE-SIGNS WITH POWER MAXED RACING

Power Maxed Racing have completed their driver line-up for the 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, re-signing Senna Proctor to partner Josh Cook.

Making his debut in the series with the Vauxhall squad last year, Proctor enjoyed a successful maiden campaign as he notched several top ten finishes on his way to clinching the Jack Sears Trophy title.

Taking the coveted rookie crown with five races to spare, the 19-year-old now return to pilot the front-wheel-drive Astra as he seeks to become the first driver to defend the JST crown.

With drivers who are yet to score a podium in the series eligible to win the crown, the teenager is eyeing success in what will be his second year in Britain’s premier race series.

“It’s great to be staying with Power Maxed Racing for the forthcoming season,” Proctor said. “We’ve been working hard together through the winter to strike the right deal, and you can’t put a price on having confidence in both the car and the team behind it.

“2017 was a fantastic year for all of us, and with the work Martin Broadhurst and the team have been putting in, and having Josh Cook as a team mate, I’m confident 2018 will be our year!

“I’d like to thank my existing sponsors, LAPD, Bee Health and Proctor Plant for the continued support.”

With a full season under their belts with the car, PMR Team Principal Adam Weaver believes retaining Proctor, as well as the addition of Cook, leaves him with one of the most exciting line-ups on the grid.

“We are well aware of Senna’s ability,” he explained. “He is still only 19 and developed superbly as a driver during last season. With a year in the car under his belt and a winter of hard work we expect him to be very strong in 2018.

“I believe we have secured the most exciting lineup in the Championship with two of the past three Jack Sears Trophy winners and cannot wait for the season to start.”
