Sutton re-signs with Laser Tools Racing as Boardley secures new third seat

Ash Sutton, Aiden Moffat and Carl Boardley are set to compete under the Laser Tools Racing banner in collaboration with Team HARD Racing in 2021. 

The team won the BTCC Drivers’ Championship last season with just the two cars on the grid in the hands of Sutton and Moffat.

The team are keeping the same platform as last year, the Infiniti Q50, but will now utilise a three car lineup for 2021.

Sutton said: “2020 was a year to remember, a new car, a new team and three championships at the end of it.

“Breaking up that championship winning package wouldn’t of been a wise move…

“It’s great to have the addition of Carl Boardley and Team Hard with us for the up-and-coming season.

“To have a third Infiniti on the grid will benefit in many ways, speeding up the development with the car, conditions and direction of setup changes throughout a weekend.

The 2020 BTCC Champion has his sights set on next season.

“My personal goal for next year is no different to the goal me and the crew set out for last season and that was to win.”

Taking the new seat at Laser Tools Racing is Carl Boardley who drove the BMW 125i M sport for HUB Financial Solutions with Team HARD in 2020.

He said: “For me, to continue in the championship required a clear vision and a path in which to enable me to challenge with the front runners, especially after a somewhat frustrating season in the 1 Series.”

His ability behind the wheel is proven as he is a four time Hot-Rod world champion as well as having multiple title charges in the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup.

All eyes will be on him and his teammates at the start of the season to yet again demonstrate their pace in the Q50.
