Still alive, living in Staffordshire. Runs the BMTR tyre company in Birmingham. His dad, Don, raced Jaguars in the 1950's, and Paul followed him in racing until, after a spell in sportscars, he stopped to concentrate on the family business, which he joined in 1982. Returned to historic racing a while back, and still does a bit of sportscar driving, as he has competed in the 24 Hour Britcar race at Silverstone and the Mugello 6 Hour race a few times since 2010. Smith was a regular driver of a Porsche 935, but was also often seen racing Tiga cars.
