Laser Tools Racing reveals RCIB backing for Infiniti programme

Laser Tools Racing has announced that RCIB Insurance will act as primary sponsor for its expanded two-car assault on the 2020 British Touring Car Championship season.

The team will run two Infiniti Q50s in the series this season after signing Ash Sutton to partner Aiden Moffat, with the team using the opening day of the Autosport International show in Birmingham to reveal the interim livery that the pair will use during the year ahead.

RCIB is a long-term supporter of Moffat and also backed Sutton when he made the move into the series with MG back in 2016. The company had been title sponsor of the AmD Tuning team for the past two seasons.

“It’s great to be working with RCIB again, as they were a big part of making my move to the BTCC happen back in 2016,” Sutton said. “To be partnered back up with them again is fantastic, and hopefully I can repay them for all their support behind the wheel of the Infiniti Q50.

“There is lots going on behind the scenes with the build of two new cars for this season and I personally can’t wait to get going, I haven’t been this excited for what’s ahead since 2017. It’s great to see the colours of RCIB tie in so well with the addition of the orange on the car. Personally I think it looks smart, and I can’t wait to see what it looks like on track for the first time!”

Moffat was also pleased with the announcement of the new, expanded partnership.

“It’s great to continue working with RCIB Insurance and [CEO] Mike Joseph.” he said. “We have been involved together since my first ever season in the BTCC and have built a great relationship and friendship, so to have RCIB as such a big part of this exciting new Laser Tools Racing project with the new Infiniti Q50s and Ash joining us is really exciting for me.

“The Laser Tools Racing car is always one of the best looking cars on the grid in my eyes, but we always like to make little changes to keep things fresh, so tying in the RCIB colours with our striking Laser Tools Racing colour scheme makes for a stunning livery!

“Right Choice Insurance Broker are a big name on the BTCC grid and have been for years now, so it’s great having them onboard with ourselves.”
