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.
Senna 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.

“The realisation that I will be lining up on the BTCC grid has not sunk in yet, let alone that I will be racing for a manufacturer. For that manufacturer to be Vauxhall is almost too good to be true. I really cannot wait to get behind the wheel of the Power Maxed Racing Vauxhall Astra to perfect my craft in the top flight of British motor sport.
This move has probably come a year earlier than planned, but when you are offered an opportunity like this then of course you don’t turn it down. I know I will have to work very hard to gain the respect of my fellow competitors, some of whom are the best touring car drivers in the world.
I am under no illusions about the challenge that lies ahead and will approach it with the seriousness it deserves. I have always admired what Power Maxed Racing have achieved, and their technical skill and teamwork fill me with confidence that this will be a long and fruitful partnership.”Senna Proctor
