BTCC outfit Power Maxed Racing are entering the Ginetta GT5 Challenge this season with teenage actor-turned-racer Brayden Fletcher.
The 19 year old makes the move into Ginetta competition after a successful season in the Mighty Mini’s in 2015, having taken four wins, twelve podiums and a top four points finish.
The Oldham racer is the young brother of Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher, who this week was announced to be racing in the BTCC this season with the Power Maxed squad.
As well as following his brother onto the race track, Brayden has also joined him in the acting world, having recently got a role on Coronation Street.
