Josh recently attended the BRSCC awards evening where he was awarded the prestigious Neil Shanahan trophy for his Formula Ford Festival win in October 2018.

Josh won the title of Formula Ford Festival Champion, after a nail biting final race back in October.

The final at Brands Hatch was double red flagged, but after the third start to the race Smith managed to steal the win with less than 1/10th of a second lead over multiple festival champion Niall Murray. 

Josh is over the moon with his success this season. "The hard work is starting to pay off. It's a roller coaster of emotions throughout the season with so many factors influencing the outcome of the races, I'm just glad I could make my family and my racing team proud". 

Special thanks go to James Oldfield of Oldfield Motorsport, my mechanics Joe White and Kirsty Allan, to my Mum and Dad and to my wonderful sponsors, without whom none of this would be possible.
