Eurotech have announced that Brett Smith will replace his father Jeff Smith for the remainder of the 2017 season, following the latter’s qualifying crash at Croft earlier this month.

The injuries sustained by Smith Sr had left the Eurotech team boss unable to compete in the BTCC for the rest of the year, and thanks to strong form in the single make Mini Challenge series, his son Brett has been chosen to take the seat from Snetterton onwards.

Smith Jr currently leads the Mini Challenge standings by 67 points, having racked up five victories so far this year, indicating the promotion was earned on more than simply family connections.

“I am naturally extremely disappointed for my season to be ended in this way,” said Smith Sr. “Having assessed a number of driver options the team are in agreement that Brett gives us the best opportunity to provide a strong second half to the season.”

To help Smith Jr to acclimatise to his new surroundings, he is scheduled to test the team’s Honda Civic Type-R next week at the same track where he is scheduled to make his series debut, Snetterton.
