Ryan Smith has been one of the rising stars of truck racing after making a late start to the discipline
35 year-old Smith, who is a relative newcomer to truck racing having only started in 2014, has so far enjoyed success in both the Delphi British Truck Racing Championship - Division 2 and the FIA ETRC, where he made his debut at Spielberg in 2015.
Driving a MAN truck with a self-run team, Smith put in eye-catching FIA ETRC performances at Red Bull Ring and Nogaro in 2015.
In 2016 Smith joined the OXXO Racing Team and instantly made his mark by scoring a podium at Red Bull Ring and then another at Hungaroring before taking his debut FIA ETRC victory at Autodrom Most.
It was a breakthrough year for Ryan who also took the British Truck Racing Championship after several commanding performances.
2017 saw Midlander Smith back with OXXO Racing Team for several races where he claimed another well-judged win at Most.
2018 will see a planned season long campaign with the newly branded OXXO Hungary Truck Racing squad.
