Meet The Team
Aron Taylor-Smith embarks on his ninth season in the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship with CarStore Power Maxed Racing in 2023.
The Irishman first burst onto the scene back in 2012, and claimed his first victory in the UK's premier tin-top series at the Brands Hatch season finale in an S2000 Motorbase-run Ford Focus.
Since then, Taylor-Smith has gone on to record another three victories and some 18 podium finishes, marking him out as one of the championship's established contenders.
Andrew Watson is an exciting addition to both CarStore Power Maxed Racing and the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship, as the MB Partners-backed driver prepares to make his debut in 2023.
The 28-year-old is no stranger to top-line competition, having raced in the likes of the FIA World Endurance Championship, including the iconic Le Mans 24 Hours.
Watson's CV also includes stints in categories such as GT World Challenge Europe, Intercontinental GT Challenge, the British GT Championship and the Ginetta GT4 Supercup.
Mikey Doble will embark on his biggest career challenge to-date when the exciting talent makes his Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship debut this year with CarStore Power Maxed Racing.
Doble enters the UK's premier tin-top series off the back of a hugely successful 2022, in which he claimed both the Ginetta GT5 and BMW Compact Cup titles.
The Fewkes Sport Management-backed racer is certainly one to watch for the future.
