Jeff Smith Continues With Eurotech Honda For BTCC 2017

1 Mins read

Jeff Smith will continue to race a Honda Civic Type-R for Eurotech Racing in the 2017 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

The Eurotech Team Principal will enter his sixth full season in the BTCC having collected two career podium finishes, a fourth place his best result of 2016 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.”

Martin Depper, team-mate to Smith in the previous two BTCC seasons, has departed the Eurotech outfit meanwhile.

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