Aiden Moffat and Laser Tools Racing to return with Ciceley Motorsport in 2016
The partnership between Aiden Moffat, Laser Tools and Ciceley Motorsport will continue in to 2016, the team have confirmed today.
A successful 2015 campaign saw Moffat place his Ciceley Motorsport-prepared Mercedes-Benz A-Class on the front row of the grid at his home round of Knockhill, alongside Ciceley’s own Adam Morgan, with both drivers going on to secure podium finishes.
“I’m really happy to be staying in the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and, with the continued support of Laser Tools, I’m really looking forward to the 2016 season,” said Moffat, who also took his first Independent win in 2015 at Donington Park. “This year has been a really good season for us and this inspires further confidence throughout the entire team. I was 19 last month and my sponsor, my team and my car have helped me to mature both as a person and a racing driver over the last 12 months. We have our aims for 2016 and continuing to have the car prepared by Ciceley Motorsport gives us the perfect platform to achieve our target.”
“We have achieved everything we set out to do in 2015,” added Aiden Moffat Racing team principal, Bob Moffat. “Aiden felt immediately comfortable and confident in the capabilities of the Mercedes right from the start of the season. Our aim was to get top-ten finishes with at least one top-five, so to achieve that together with an independent win and a podium for Aiden at Knockhill, it has definitely been a successful year.”
Ciceley themselves are confident going in to the 2016 season after impressive results from both drivers throughout 2015, with Morgan becoming a regular finisher in the top five and ending the year seventh in the points standings.
“This is very good news for both teams,” said Ciceley Motorsport team owner, Russell Morgan. “Nobody has been surprised by Aiden’s pace this year. We immediately witnessed his potential and his natural talent during his very first test in the Mercedes-Benz A-Class at Donington Park, when Aiden lapped the track within the same couple of tenths all day long. All Aiden needed was seat time which in turn has honed his racecraft. This year he has kept Adam honest, and will continue to do so in 2016 as they push each other which in turn is helping us to develop the cars. WIX Filters have also recently extended their title sponsorship agreement with our team, meaning the Ciceley Mercedes team can only benefit further from our continued association.”
