Eurotech Racing have taken the covers off their pair of Honda Civic Type R’s to reveal a striking new colour scheme ahead of the 2018 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
Confirming that WIX Filters will come on-board as title sponsors of the Independent outfit, both Jack Goff’s and Brett Smith’s machines will run the well-known and striking black and yellow colour scheme this year.
No stranger to the BTCC having adorned the cars of Rob Austin and Adam Morgan in recent years, the Eurotech/WIX partnership is one that has filled everyone with excitement.
Running under the WIX Racing with Eurotech banner for the forthcoming campaign, the team has high hopes as it bids to forge a winning partnership.
“I am over the moon to be working with WIX in the 2018 BTCC season,” said two-time race winner Goff. “They have an amazing heritage in the world of motorsport and I can’t wait to be the next person to represent them on and off track.
“It’s fair to say the cars look stunning as is always the case with the WIX Racing cars.”
In addition to the new livery, Eurotech have also confirmed that they will run different engines as opposed to last year.
Following several years of being powered by the TOCA Swindon engine, the team are reverting back to their championship-winning partnership of 2013 by teaming with Neil Brown Engineering, running the same power plant that will be in the pair of works’ Honda’s.
Jeff Smith, Eurotech Racing Team Owner, said: “The combination of these two experts in their fields should give us the edge we are seeking. The BTCC is one of the hardest championships in the world and every hundredth of a second counts.
“We will be pushing every aspect of every component to get the best performance – our aim this year is to win the big trophies.”
An initial engine shakedown has already taken place and further development and testing is set to take place at the end of the month in Spain with Goff, Smith and Matt Simpson.
