Stuart Started his 2014 season off with a bang by winning the UK Open Championship in only his first meeting back after a year long break, this guy has still got it!
“The 1 and only” Stuart Smith
His Achievements are well documented, but bear repeating: thirteen consecutive points titles, two seasons with at least fifty final victories, a grand total of 500 final wins, six World Championships including three consecutive victories, three times British Champion, three times European Champion. There were also successes overseas, in Holland, New Zealand and South Africa. He was, simply, an outstanding talent and could dominate race meetings to the point that his presence would often reduce the races to a fight for second place. He finally had the machinery to match his talent and he swept all before him, running away to the points and World Championship double. Stuart kept on winning, right on into the 1980s, before he reined in his participation and concentrated on World Championships For the memories and achievements of BriSCA F1 driver “The 1 and only” Stuart Smith will live on for many decades and more in the hearts, minds and souls of all the stock car fans he entertained over his years in the sport.
