Having become the youngest BTCC driver in history when he made his debut at Knockhill in 2013, the 20-year-old has spent the past three seasons in the Laser Tools Racing fold and will remain there in 2017.

After switching to Mercedes A-Class machinery in 2015, Moffat has made gradual gains which culminated in his career-best result of second place at this year's season finale at Brands Hatch. As a result, Moffat will stay with the Laser Tools Racing squad next season as he looks to build on the current momentum.

“The BTCC is where we're going to stay, it's a fantastic championship and as a team we're constantly improving,” Moffat said. “We developed our Mercedes a lot over the 2016 season and we've got further progress planned before the 2017 season starts too.

“I've had a full year now with race engineer Federico Turrata and we have a definite bond — we know how each other thinks — and this has shown in the race results. At the closing rounds at Brands the car just felt right, I had great pace and I could place it wherever I wanted. With this confidence and the new TOCA engine, we're in a great position going into the 2017 season.

“I've really enjoyed my time in the BTCC so far and the podium at the end of the year was just reward for everyone involved. Laser Tools Racing fully appreciates that our partners have committed again for next year, and this puts us in a very strong position.”
