Mark Smith is an auto racing driver, in the 2006 British Touring Car Championship for the In-Front team in an Alfa Romeo 156. Their preparations were hampered pre-season, when a gearbox which was supposed to come ready-to-run was supplied in kit form and not until after the first race weekend. As a result, the team did the first race with an old-fashioned H-pattern box, and skipped round 2 completely. They never scored a top 10 finish, and did not return in 2007.
Before entering the BTCC, Mark primarily raced in VW cars, first in the Tomcat Vento Challenge (which he won in 2000), and later the VW Racing Cup, in which he was runner up in 2005. He is from the Staffordshire town of Hednesford.
