Current Victoria # 2 and now New South Wales # 4 race driver Stuart Ferguson is keen to add a second Victorian title victory to his name when he hits the track this weekend at Mid-Western Speedway Darlington as one half of a two car team with his son Luke and both are in the top 6 favourites in the field to possibly go on and seal the deal and become # 1.
The 45 year old Motor Mechanic businessman from Bass in South Gippsland runs an E15 Nissan powered engine put together by himself in a Stealth Chassis with everything on race day taken care of by a strong crew involving Dean Benson the crew chief along with Joel Benson and Lachlan Ferguson to complete the crew.
Stewy has won most of the major events on the Mini Sprint Calendar in the last decade including the Victorian title in 06/07, the Mallee Shield along the way and now twice the Geoff Moule Memorial back to back in 12/13 season and the current season. Also this season the # 4 car took victory in the first ever Mighty Mouse Magic to honour Colin Lindell a former club member.
Nyora Raceway which is situated just around the corner from Stewy and Redline Raceway are his favourite race tracks to run on and Stewy has been instrumental in building a relationship with the current management at Redline in order to ensure Mini Sprints get on the calendar there. Redline used to run plenty of their own Mini Sprints back in the day and with Bill Jubber over that side of town currently running Mini Sprints, Stewy hopes to encourage more to join in the division.
Matt Parsons is Stewy’s most respected competitor saying that Matt races hard but is clean as he makes his way around the track.
