Aiden Moffat to race both TCR and BTCC this year

British Touring Car Championship race winner Aiden Moffat will dovetail his campaign in the series with an attack on the new TCR UK championship.

Moffat, who races a Laser Tools Racing-branded Mercedes A-Class in the BTCC, will drive an Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR in a two-car team alongside ex-BTCC racer Derek Palmer.

“I briefly tested the car Alfa Romeo in Italy some months ago and I’m happy that we will be running the Alfas — it really is a very good car,” said the 21-year-old Scot.”With my BTCC commitment, it looks like I am going to be racing most weekends this year!

“It’s exciting that I’ve been asked to take part in the very first TCR Championship in the UK and am confident that I can do really well for the team.”
