Driver aims for trophy success after fine rookie season





RACE ace Mikey Doble admits he is targeting silverware this season when he once again lines up for Bidford-based Power Maxed Racing in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship.

Having secured a pole position and gone so close to victory in the Jack Sears Trophy – for drivers without a race win – in his rookie season, the 25-year-old now wants more success on the track.

“Coming into your rookie season, you never know quite what to expect.” Doble said. “But I came in with no specific goals other than to just try and hold my own. I didn’t want to go out and kind of be off the back or not be able to keep up and give it a proper fight.

“I’m arguably looking forward to this season more than I was last season. Now I’ve got a season under my belt, I know what to expect, I’ve gelled with the team, I know how to work in that sort of environment now whereas I had no experience of that before.

“There’s less nerves and more promise. For me, going into the season I want to start strong and pick up where we left off at the end of last year.”

The 2024 Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship gets underway with a trip to Donington Park on the 27/28th April.
