Smith made his debut for his new team, CHROME Edition Restart Racing, at Brands Hatch Indy, taking a best finish of seventh at the meeting. This meeting was also the first time that Smith drove the new Volkswagen CCs that the team are equipping their drivers with this season.
Smith began his career, like most, in go-karting, ultimately winning the Irish Open Kart Championship in 2006. In 2007, Smith joined one of the BTCC's support championships, the Renault Clio Cup. In 2008 Smith took part in the winter edition of the series, beating future BTCC and WTCC competitor Alex MacDowall in the process of winning the title. In 2010, Smith switched to the Italian version of the Clio Cup, before returning to compete once more in the UK version, ending the 2011 season joint second in the championship.
In 2011, during Smith's campaign for the Clio Cup title, Triple Eight Race Engineering offered Smith a chance to drive one of their Vauxhall Vectra's at Knockhill. A promising debut resulted in a single point, and prompted Smith to follow his brother into the championship the following year.
For the next two years, Smith drove a Ford Focus ST for Motorbase Performance (racing under the names Airwaves Racing in 2013 and Redstone Racing in 2012). It was at the season finale at Brands Hatch's GP circuit that Smith made announced himself to the paddock, taking victory in the penultimate race of 2012. This was backed by another four podiums in 2013.
