The Melbourne native steps out with the renowned Van Amersfoort outfit, the Dutch squad that counts Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc among its bigger-name graduates over a near 50-year history.
Smith – whose uncle is Supercars driver Jack Smith – raced in the GB3 Championship (formerly known as British F3) the past two years, winning in Belgium last year as one of two podiums.
