Eurotech Racing celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2013 with its first outright BTCC Drivers’ title. The team was managed by Mike Jordan, who raced for the squad in 2006, with his son Andrew driving alongside for the first time in 2008.
After a season competing for the factory Vauxhall VX Racing outfit in 2009, Andrew returned to the family team in 2010. That year also saw Pirtek come on-board as title sponsor, and with this backing the team rose to championship-winning stature over the following three campaigns.
Independent Teams’ and Drivers’ Champions in 2012, Andrew Jordan and Pirtek Racing went one better in 2013 to triumph outright in one of the most exciting BTCC battles to-date. The team returned in 2014 with Jordan and Martin Depper, with the former featuring strongly over the first half of the season and winding up fifth overall.
2015 saw Jeff Smith rejoin the BTCC with Eurotech on both driving and operational duties, lining up alongside Depper. In the older-specification Honda Civic, the pair chalked up 40 points-scoring positions between them. They remained for 2016, garnering regular points in the latest-spec Honda Civic Type R.
For 2017, Jack Goff joined Eurotech Racing, switching to the front-wheel drive Honda Civic Type R. He secured victory at Silverstone alongside a further five podiums over the course of the season. Under the WIX Racing with Eurotech banner for 2018, Goff will be hoping that last season’s promise was a sign of even better things to come.
For the second half of 2017, son of Team Principal Jeff, Brett Smith had occupied the seat previously taken by his father. After impressing during his stint it was announced Smith would return for a full campaign in 2018, where he will look to build on several points finishes.
