Welcome to Senna Proctor Racing
The son of Mark Proctor, Senna, enters the BTCC in 2017 with Power Maxed Racing and will partner Tom Chilton in the new manufacturer-supported Vauxhall Astra.
Proctor completed full seasons in the Ginetta Junior Championship with JHR Developments, finishing 12th in 2014 with a best result of 3rd.
He was runner-up in 2015 with four race wins plus nine more podiums, making for an unrivalled tally of 13. He won the title in Brands Hatch GP finale only to have it removed several weeks later when the race result was amended.
For 2016, Proctor competed in the Renault UK Clio Cup for Team BMR with Pyro and finished 8th overall.
“I’m so excited to have Senna on-board. He caught my attention back in 2015 in Ginetta Juniors. I was impressed by how he excelled against very tough competition, and it’s great to be helping him to realise both his dream and his potential of racing in the BTCC.
It’s fantastic to once again be supporting and developing young talent, as we did with Josh Cook in 2015. I think Senna will cope with the added pressure this drive brings as he seems to have a very old head on young shoulders. In Senna, I think we have signed a driver who we can build a long-term relationship with and turn into a future champion.
Senna will inject a healthy dose of youth and enthusiasm into the team, and I’m sure both he and our other driver – who will be a more experienced, household name – will keep each other on their toes and continually spur each other on.”Power Maxed Racing Team Principal Adam Weaver. “
Power Maxed Racing has announced its first driver for the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, with young talent Senna Proctor set to pilot one of the manufacturer outfit’s new Vauxhall Astras.
Senna has enjoyed a very strong racing career to date, coming through the TOCA package from Ginetta Juniors when in 2015 he took four race victories and 13 out of 20 podiums – more than any other driver. In 2016, Proctor moved to the highly competitive UK Clio Cup, taking a brace of podiums and finishing third in the Graduate Cup.
Now preparing to step up again, the 18-year-old from Bridlington, East Yorkshire is set to become one of the youngest manufacturer drivers in the BTCC’s history, and he has his sights firmly fixed on the Jack Sears Trophy in his rookie campaign.
