BTC Racing has confirmed it will run with title backing from Power Maxed for its return to the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship this season.

The team will field a single Chevrolet Cruze for Chris Stockton, with the car being the hatchback variant of the car that had been started by RML before it elected to pull the plug on its own NGTC programme prior to the start of the 2012 season.

Power Maxed had previously been involved in BTCC sponsorship with both Tom Onslow-Cole and Aiden Moffat.

"We have had a lot of experience with motorsport and Touring Car sponsorship and know that Chris and his team are the best people to work with in 2014," Adam Weaver, MD of Power Maxed owners Automotive Brands, said. "They have a great car produced by a proven manufacturer in RML and have acquired a fantastic hospitality unit.

"To top it all off we have been so impressed by the professionalism and desire of not only Chris, but all of his team to be the best, which is also the ethos behind the Power Maxed brand."

Stockton himself said he was delighted with the new sponsorship agreement.

"It will be great to be back in the BTCC and in a car that has the reliability and power to give the front runners a run for their money," he said. "I'm thrilled to be working with Power Maxed Racing - both of us have worked tirelessly to create a true partnership and a great platform that will perform on the track but also provide a fantastic marketing platform for Power Maxed."
