Can Chilton do the double?

Tom Chilton’s World Touring Car career isn’t over just yet. The newly announced Power Maxed Racing driver is aiming to do the double and take both the BTCC and WTCC titles in 2017.

Chilton, who raced in BTCC for ten years between 2002 and 2011, will return to the series after five years racing in the WTCC.

With no date clash between the two series, Chilton is hoping to compete in both series in 2017, though he’s yet to sign for a WTCC seat.

“Signing for Vauxhall in the BTCC is not the end of the WTCC for me,” Chilton said.

“I’m still putting the sponsorship together to do it because I’ve got a good chance to be world champion next year.

“None of the dates clash, although I’ve not signed anything.”

If Chilton were to take both titles in 2017, he would make history as the first man to do so. It’s a high ambition though. Chilton’s best finish in either championship was fifth (2005 & 2010 in the BTCC and 2013 in the WTCC).
