Teenager Senna Proctor will stay with the Vauxhall-blessed Power Maxed Racing team for the 2018 British Touring Car Championship

Senna Proctor retains Power Maxed Vauxhall BTCC seat for 2018

Proctor, 19, claimed the Jack Sears Trophy for BTCC rookies in 2017, earning class honours in half of the 30 rounds.

The Jack Sears Trophy regulations for this season have been altered to embrace any driver who has yet to claim an overall podium, which means Proctor will be eligible again.

He will line up alongside team returnee Josh Cook in PMR's 2018 line-up.

"We've been working hard together through the winter to strike the right deal, and you can't put a price on having confidence in both the car and the team behind it," said Proctor.

"Last year was a fantastic year for all of us, and with the work [team manager] Martin Broadhurst and the team have been putting in, and having Josh Cook as a team-mate, I'm confident 2018 will be our year."

Power Maxed Racing team principal Adam Weaver said he thought the team had the "most exciting driver line-up" in the BTCC.

"We are well aware of Senna's ability," Weaver added.

"He is still only 19 and developed superbly as a driver during last season.

"With a year in the car under his belt and a winter of hard work we expect him to be very strong in 2018."
