Taylor-Smith made his debut in BTCC in 2011 and has raced successfully with Team BMR, Team BKR and in 2017 with Triple Eight. It has been a difficult season for the 28 year old, finishing in the top ten just once and sustaining a fractured leg in the horrific crash at Croft that also saw Luke Davenport and Jeff Smith put out off action.

It is not yet confirmed which series Taylor-smith will be competing in but the Irishman has stated he is in talks with the SRO Blancpain GT Championship but is also considering options to race in America, but has not ruled out a return to BTCC in the future.
