Support keeps racer Chris Smith in the fast lane

LOUTH Tyre Services has sponsored local racer Chris Smith and his 1968 Dodge Charger for the 2011/12 season at Santa Pod Raceway.

His car is methanol-injected, generates 1,000hp and a displacement of 9.67 litres.

Chris will be defending his 2011 Unlimited King of The Street title at The Mopar Euro Nationals in July.

LTS has worked closely with Chris to bring the car to where it is today, running a best time last year of 9.48 seconds at 144mph over the quarter-mile to claim the title.
