Jeff Smith confirmed at Eurotech
Eurotech Racing has confirmed that Jeff Smith will return to drive a Honda Civic Type R in the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
Team Principal Smith will contest his sixth full season in BTCC, having reached the podium twice in his career so far. His best result last year was a fourth place finish at Thruxton.
“We had great race pace last year and the true qualifying pace of the car was clearly proven by Daniel Lloyd when he put it on the front row in two out of three rounds he competed in,” said Smith.
“You can’t stand still in this championship, back at base in our new 8,000 square foot state of the art workshop the team have been flat out since we finished the last round at Brands Hatch. We have a full testing programme in place which includes a week long test in Spain at the end of February, so I believe we will be in a strong position to move forwards in 2017.”
The team is currently in negotiations with a number of drivers for the second seat to complete their two-car 2017 line-up.
