Senna Proctor will drive for Excelr8 Motorsport in the 2020 British Touring Car Championship after the Hyundai squad announce their first driver signing ahead of the new season.

The BTCC race winner enters his fourth season in the series after spending 2019 with the Team BMR Subaru outfit alongside former champion Ashley Sutton.

Having run two MGs during their debut BTCC campaign last season, Excelr8 are bringing Hyundai into the series with the i30 Fastback N Performance model, meaning Proctor will be at the forefront of the new car's development.

The 21-year old says he's excited over the prospect of developing the new Hyundai and believes Excelr8 'could be a force to be reckoned with in 2020 and beyond'.

“I am incredibly excited to be joining Excelr8 Motorsport and I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the new Hyundai BTCC car,” said Proctor.

“When Excelr8 contacted me back in September about the possibility of leading a new car development for them I have to say I was honoured.

“Having met the team at Excelr8, it was clear that they share the same ambitions as me of one day lifting the BTCC crown and with my past experience of front-wheel drive we can grow together and make this become a reality over the next few seasons.

“But it’s one step at a time and we are under no illusion that there will be a lot of hard work ahead for 2020, it will be top ten and hopefully podiums finishes to get the ball rolling.

“I am heading into my fourth season in the BTCC and along with the expertise of Excelr8 Motorsport I think we could be a force to be reckoned with in 2020 and beyond.”
