Brett Smith will make his British Touring Car Championship debut at Snetterton after Eurotech Racing confirm he will replace his injured father Jeff for the rest of the 2017 season.

The Eurotech Team Principal/driver Smith Sr was involved in the massive qualifying pile-up at Croft and will miss the remainder of the season as he recovers from his injuries.

Brett is currently in the lead of MINI Challenge Championship and will make his first appearance for the Eurotech BTCC squad during next month's official group test at Snetterton, prior to his race debut alongside the Honda squad's regular driver, Jack Goff.

"I am naturally extremely disappointed for my season to be ended in this way," said the Eurotech Racing Team Principal.

"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."
