Alan Smith developed his love of bikes and racing in the 1980s when he competed in local and national amateur motocross events, his highest achievement being several top three positions in the national four-stroke and superclass categories.
Smiths Gloucester Ltd first sponsored a rider in the British Superbike Championship in 2010. Since then they have formed their own team, Smiths Racing.
Smiths Racing have gone on to win two British Supersport titles with Glen Richards and Billy McConnell as well as an Isle of Man TT.
The Smiths Racing Team continues the family ethos with daughter Rebecca adopting the mantle of Team Manager.
