Eurotech re­turns with two-car line-up, with Smith con­firmed

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Team boss Jeff Smith will once again race his Team Eurotech Racing Honda Civic Type-r in the Bri­tish Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship this term.

Smith will be con­test­ing his sixth full BTCC sea­son, and he took a best fin­ish of fifth at Thrux­ton last year.

Smith said: “We had great race pace last year and the true qual­i­fy­ing pace of the car was clearly proven by [team-mate] Daniel Lloyd when he put it on the front row in two out of three rounds he com­peted in.

“You can’t stand still in this cham­pi­onship, back at base in our new 8,000 square foot state-ofthe-art work­shop the team have been flat out since we fin­ished the last round at Brands Hatch.”

The team is in ne­go­ti­a­tions with a num­ber of driv­ers for the sec­ond seat to com­plete the 2017 line up.
