Will it be all smiles at Spa

Team HARD. are very proud to announce Chris Smiley as the latest driver to join them and will make his debut in the VW Cup this coming weekend at Spa.

Chris will take to the wheel of the all new liveried Team HARD. car and will get his first laps, not only in the VW Cup Car but also of the legendary Spa circuit during the Thursday test sessions. 

“Chris is without doubt a top racing driver and very capable of running at the front. We are excited to be working with him and see where we can take our relationship. It will be interesting to see how he develops over the weekend and gets to grips with the Golf Cup car . Chris is currently racing in the 2014 VW Scirocco R Cup and although there are some characteristics that will be similar, there are also quite a few differences.”

Chris added, “I am very excited about getting the opportunity to drive for team Hard in the Vw racing cup in their new golf. It will be a new learning curve in a new car and circuit with a new team. It should be interesting to see how we go and how quickly we can get on the pace.”

After a successful karting career, Chris produced a strong record of results in MINI racing. In 2011 he was a regular race winner in the Scottish MINI Cooper Cup and winner of the Young Driver of the Year Award. After a very competitive season in the 2012 UK MINI Challenge, Chris took 9 victories and 6 lap records on his way to winning the 2013 JCW Cup Championship.
