Power Maxed Racing are very happy to announce that Aron Taylor Smith will join the team for his 9th season in the KwikFit
British Touring Car Championship. Aron, started his racing career in karts, coincidentally at the same track as team
mate Andrew Watson, then, progressed to cars, he is a very talented young driver with a spectacular history of multiple wins in the BTCC and has been a member of the paddock for many years as before stepping in to BTCC he was a contender in the popular Clio cup.
Having visited the podium in the BTCC no less than 18 times amassing 5 outright race wins, he has experience of running with Championship winning team mates
such as Jason Plato and Colin Turkington and is now very excited to bring all that experience across to PMR as they work together to both get back to winning
Power Maxed Racing welcomes his wealth of knowledge and driver experience to the team, his belief in himself and above all else his burning desire to win.
Aron Taylor Smith said “This is a dream come true for me, the dream after this is to win another race in the BTCC and the dream after that is to fight for a championship. I have watched what Adam and his Team have put together over the years, and have seen what their car is capable of on the track, I know their desire matches mine when it comes to success, we have tried to get a deal done in the past and its never quite come together so I am beyond happy that it has this year. Visiting the workshop and seeing what they have done over the winter, I have never been more confident going in to a season”
Team Principal Adam Weaver clearly beamed with joy when questioned why he had put so much effort behind getting Aron Taylor Smith in a Power Maxed Racing Astra stating “He is just a great guy, his enthusiasm is contagious and more of that in a team can never be a bad thing. I know Aron and Andrew will get on brilliantly and I’m really looking forward to being a part of this team. Its everything we have been working towards and I have never been this excited about the BTCC year ahead”
Not long to go, until the first round of the BTCC season being at one of Arons favourites, Donington Park National Circuit on the 22 nd / 23 rd April, with all his family and partners supporting him, he hopes he will be able to hit the ground running.
