Chris Smiley, the driver of the Restart Racing Team, powered the TCR UK championship title in its first year of competition and this year he is having a key role with the new Honda Civic Type R.

Smiley has been selected after his global debut at Snetterton, which took place at the end of April, as the first driver in the world to race the brand-new touring car.

Magneti Marelli Parts & Services, which recently had a showcase event at the Automechanika Birmingham show (the leading trade exhibition show for the automotive market in the UK) is enthusiast to work with the championship-winning driver.

The brand Magneti Marelli Checkstar will be exposed on the front and on the side of the Civic Type Rs.

It’s a privilege to be working with such a high-quality array of sponsors this year, and there’s no question that to have Magneti Marelli Checkstar onboard with us this season, since they’re the main player in the automotive Aftermarket business is a feather in our cap.
