Teenage Australian Supercars driver Alex Rullo will test a Power Maxed Racing Vauxhall Astra British Touring car at Brands Hatch next Thursday.
The 17-year-old moved into the main Supercars championship from the Development Series this season with Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport, with 15th in the Bathurst 1000 alongside Alex Davison his best result so far.
Rullo said he was serious about a potential BTCC switch for 2018.
"It's a long way to travel for one day, so naturally I wanted to test with a developing top team," he said.
"I have thought long and hard about my options for 2018.
"The BTCC is an incredible series and could be the way to go for us in 2018, so when we contacted [PMR team principal] Adam Weaver and then he subsequently offered me the opportunity naturally I jumped at it."
Power Maxed has tested a number of drivers in recent weeks.
Senna Proctor, who won the rookie-based Jack Sears Trophy, and Tom Chilton raced for the outfit this year, but since the final rounds at Brands Hatch in October, Power Maxed has run 2016 BTCC runner-up Sam Tordoff and sportscar racer Martin Plowman in testing sessions.
Martin Broadhurst, team manager for Power Maxed Racing, said: "Any testing days done give us further information on the car, and allow us to start thinking about what kind of drivers we might want to bring in and set-up required to help us get pole positions and hopefully therefore more podiums next year."
