Eurotech joins Mini Challenge grid with F56s for Smith and Polley
Jeff Smith will contest the Mini Challenge this year alongside his British Touring Car Championship commitments.
Smith took part in the final round of the Challenge last season at Snetterton, scoring a podium finish in one of the new Gen 3 F56 machines. Smith has now purchased two of the new cars and will field them under his Eurotech Racing banner.
Smith will race the first, while Jo Polley will step up from the championship’s Cooper Class to race the other.
Smith will also handle a Eurotech-run Honda Civic Type R in this season’s BTCC.
“I was impressed with the Minis when I raced them last year,” said Smith. “The cars are very quick and quite edgy so they are a good stepping stone into touring cars. It gives me valuable seat time between touring car rounds.”
