Having tasted victory in their maiden season with Árón Taylor-Smith in 2016, Airtec Motorsport have once again committed to the BTCC for 2017. Airtec Motorsport has become an iconic name in the tuning world and have now enrolled the services of Taylor-Smith as a Brand Ambassador.
The 27 year old Irishman has become one to watch in the BTCC over the past five seasons, accumulating eighteen career podiums and four race wins. For 2017 Taylor-Smith has signed to be in one of the most coveted seats on the BTCC grid as a manufacture backed MG driver.
“Last year was my first season working with Airtec Motorsport and we all instantly clicked. The brand is massive and is one of the most recognisable in the motorsport industry, it’s a company that I love to be involved with as they suit me down to the ground.”
Airtec Motorsport have been manufacturing and producing high performance parts for fast road and race cars for the past eight years. Their products are widely recognised as the market leaders in terms of development as they are constantly reinvesting in technical expertise. Specialising in performance upgrades for a wide range of cars the Essex based company is known worldwide.
Naming Árón Taylor-Smith as a brand ambassador has stepped up Airtec’s involvement within the UK’s premier motorsport championship, the British Touring Car Championship. Árón’s brand ambassador role will see him testing and developing products alongside Airtec as well as representing the brand in the BTCC. Árón heads into the 2017 in the best position yet of his BTCC career to challenge at the front in what looks to be one of the most competitive seasons to date. While only announcing his drive with MG in February the team have been preparing for the start of the season throughout the winter. The MG 6 is renowned for being one of the most successful cars in the history of the BTCC and has undergone a revamp of engineering for the start of the 2017 season.
“Árón is the perfect Brand Ambassador for us. He is one of the fastest drivers in the BTCC and knows exactly what it takes to get the most out of a car, exactly what we are looking for to help with development. He’s approachable and good fun to be around, we’re all really looking forward to seeing what we can do in 2017 #KeepItAirtec”
