This weekend (22/23 April), CarStore with Power Maxed Racing driver Mikey Doble, is set to lift the curtain on his maiden Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship campaign at Donington Park.Stepping up into the UK’s premier motorsport series for 2023, the 24-year-old – who last year clinched both the Ginetta GT5 Challenge and BMW Compact Cup titles – is setting his sights on consistent points finishes and Jack Sears Trophy glory.Teaming up with Aron Taylor-Smith and Andrew Watson at the Independent-run Vauxhall Astra squad, Doble will take centre stage in front of a capacity crowd at the Leicestershire venue, as well as many more watching on ITV4, for three blockbuster races on Sunday – achieving a lifelong dream in the process.Since announcing his BTCC graduation in March, the Surrey-based racer has undergone a busy pre-season programme which has included a number of test days behind the wheel; clocking valuable mileage at Donington Park, Snetterton and most recently Brands Hatch.Tasked with not only getting dialled into his front-wheel-drive machine, Doble has also had to contend with understanding the nuances of hybrid power and the option tyre.“I’m really excited and now just ready to get going; it’s been a long winter of hard work but it’s now almost time to do the real fun part of the job which is go racing.” said Mikey Doble, “If I’m honest I still don’t think it’s fully sunk in that I’m a BTCC driver.“Everyone at CarStore Power Maxed Racing has been so welcoming which is great.
