“Having met the team at Excelr8, it was clear that they share the same ambitions as me of one day lifting the BTCC crown and with my past experience of front-wheel drive, we can grow together and make this become a reality over the next few seasons.
“But it’s one step at a time and we are under no illusion that there will be a lot of hard work ahead for 2020; it will be a case of pushing for as many top ten finishes and possibly podiums to get the ball rolling.
“I am heading into my fourth season in the BTCC and along with the expertise of Excelr8 Motorsport, I think we could be a force to be reckoned with in 2020 and beyond.”
Team Principal Oliver Shepherd was pleased to welcome Proctor onboard.
“2019 was a learning year for Excelr8 in BTCC, whereas 2020 is the year where we will show that we are not just in BTCC to make up the numbers,” he said. “Senna joining the team is a massive step towards this aim and we are certain that his raw speed and his experience in BTCC will be key ingredients in helping us to make this step forward. We are looking forward to working together with Senna to take the fight to the established teams, bring it on!”Senna Proctor
