The former British GT champion, although new to touring cars brings a wealth of experience to the paddock. Previous racing achievements include placing second in the Quaife MINI Challenge series, winning the 2014 Ginetta Juniors Championship, taking the GT3 Silver Cup crown in 2017 and the overall GT4 championship the following year. Mitchell then spent two further years in the British GT which included his first overall GT3 win.
BTCC race winner Aron Taylor-Smith will be making his return to the series driving in the team’s third Cupra Leon.
Taylor-Smith has been away from the series for 4 years, last competing in 2017 where he took multiple race wins driving the now retired Volkswagen CC. Since his debut in 2011 he has completed six full seasons in the series. In 2018, Taylor-Smith switched to GT racing taking several class wins in the Blancpain GT Sprint Cup series and competed in the British GT championship in 2019. However, Aron felt the 2021 season was the right time to make his return to the BTCC.

Laser Tools Racing are currently building a third Infiniti Q50 that Carl Boardley will switch to from the BMW 1 series for the upcoming season.
“For me, there is nothing like the BTCC as a fan, a driver, a team owner or a businessman. At every level it ticks all the boxes. It’s a TV show with some great characters which is full of highs and lows. The marketing of the championship is fantastic with the fan base being second to none. You won’t find another championship like it. For 2019 we will be running our four Volkswagen CC’s which are proven machinery in the BTCC paddock. In 2018 the 2017 Clio Cup champion and the 2017 VW Cup champion joined the team demonstrating that we are one of the most exciting teams on the grid.
Realistically, all we want to do is to keep improving. We want to win every championship we compete in and we have done in the Britcar, VW Cup and British GT, yet the BTCC still eludes us. To win the BTCC would write our team in UK motorsport history. We are a young team that is pushing established manufacturers to the limit and our plan is to bring our partners along for the rise to the top of the UK’s most prestigious championship and beyond!”
