Aiden Moffat is to run under the Laser Tools Racing banner for his first full season in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship after agreeing a title sponsorship agreement with the tool manufacturer.
Moffat will race in his own team this season having acquired the Chevrolet Cruze built and developed by Andy Neate's IP Tech Race Engineering outfit in 2013 and has already started testing in the car.
The deal with Laser will see the company move into the BTCC having previously backed James Nash's WTCC programme with Bamboo Engineering.
“We have been watching Aiden Moffat carefully over the past twelve months.” Laser Tools MD Martin Smith said. “We have had success with WTCC sponsorship over the past few years but have felt that the BTCC series could offer us exciting opportunities.
“When Aiden announced his plans for 2014 with the NGTC Chevrolet Cruze it was a perfect fit and our partnership was formed.”
Moffat himself was pleased with the new agreement.
“I'm very excited to become involved with such a professional outfit as Laser Tools,” he said. “Laser Tools Racing is my family for the 2014 season and I fully intend to repay their faith in me during the season.
“We know that with the stunning field that has been assembled in 2014 the BTCC is an amazing place to be and I am sure I can give my sponsors and my fans plenty to cheer about. Bring it on!”
