The latest professional racing driver to join Laser Tools as a brand ambassador is Darren Turner, works driver for Aston Martin Racing and high performance development driver for Aston Martin Lagonda.
Turner’s role as Laser Tools brand ambassador is to promote and develop hybrid and electric vehicle tools and equipment.
Turner has also recently begun his role as test driver for the Kwik Fit British Touring Car Championship’s new hybrid programme, which kicked off its on-track testing at Snetterton Circuit on July 7.
His responsibility is to give in-depth feedback and assist in development of the BTCC’s first specification hybrid system, which is comprised of a 60V gearbox-mounted hybrid motor that generates around 40bhp additional power for the driver when applied.
“Motorsport organisers and racing teams are now seriously looking at hybrid/EV technology,” Darren Turner commented, “And as Laser Tools are the UK’s foremost suppliers of hybrid/EV insulated tools and workshop safety equipment, now is the right time to become involved with such a forward-thinking company. I recently visited the Laser Tools’ Tech Centre in Warwickshire and their range of hybrid/EV insulated tools and the new products in the pipeline are quite breathtaking.
“One of the thing Laser is currently working on is insulated tool kits for racing teams that will be running hybrid/EV cars — it will be interesting to get involved with them in that side of things. Plus with their Laser Tools Racing BTCC team the company is in a unique position to develop these kits.”
