Eurotech calls time on BTCC project
Eurotech Racing has sold its British Touring Car Championship licence and will not compete in the series in 2019, in a move that is likely to prompt a raft of team-ownership changes.
The team, which is owned by racer Jeff Smith and ran Honda Civics for his son Brett and Jack Goff, has sold its TOCA BTCC Licences (TBLS) to another squad, which is expected to make an announcement soon. Several teams in the lower part of the grid are expected to sell or swap licences as the end-of-november deadline for 2019 entries looms.
Smith Sr, who bought Eurotech from founder Mike Jordan in December 2014, said: “One of our major sponsors, ICD, are currently unable to continue their level of support. I would like to thank all of our team and drivers for their hard work, our sponsors, technical partners and fans for their support during the past four seasons.”
Jack Goff took the team’s maiden win under new ownership at Silverstone in 2017 and was in the heart of the title fight this season with two more victories. He took eighth in the standings and third in the Independents Trophy.
