Bidford team Power Maxed Racing enjoy productive day at the British Touring Car Championship's official season launch
EXCITEMENT is building at Power Maxed Racing ahead of the 2021 British Touring Car Championship campaign following a successful run out at the official season launch last Thursday.
Jason Plato and Dan Lloyd headed to Silverstone to put the Bidford-based team’s 2021 Vauxhall Astra through its final paces around the National circuit layout before heading to Thruxton for the BTCC opener on 8th and 9th May.
Sporting a brand new livery for the upcoming campaign, PMR enjoyed a productive final pre-season test, with Plato and Lloyd putting in a combined 107 laps in the first practice session.
Two-time BTCC champion Plato finished fourth fastest in 57.609 (50 laps) while Lloyd ended 14th with a best time of 57.836 (57 laps).
The second practice session provided PMR with more useful data, as Plato ended the session in fifth with a best time of 57.485 (34 laps) while Lloyd’s time of 57.624 (57 laps) classified him eighth.
The combined classification saw Plato in fifth and Lloyd in ninth.
