Stuart Smith Jnr is the second son of the legendary Champion Stuart Smith to have entered into the world of BriSCA F1 Stock Cars.
Younger brother of Andy Smith (391), he followed Andy’s route into the sport by racing V8 Hotstox. He had big success in the V8 Hotstox and won all the major honours in that formula.

In 2001 he tried a one off outing in F1’s using brother Andy’s car. In a demonstration of things to come, he pulled no punches, even having a dig at the old master John Lund (53) in an attempt to win his first final. In 2003 he returned to F1 full time with his own self built car, and proved to be very fast, particularly on shale, but also somewhat unpredictable. His aggressive style often getting him caught up in traffic or spinning out of position. In an era when many of the top drivers were moving to specialized cars for Shale and Tarmac, it was clear that Stuart was being compromised on the Tarmac by running a dual-surface car. In 2006 the Team Smith Racing outfit unveiled there own specialized Tar Cars. The car had an immediate effect on Stuarts racing on the hard stuff, winning many races at the Tarmac stadiums around the country. When in 2007 a new shale car emerged, it had the same effect on his shale driving, which culminated in his first major victory when he won the World Championship at Kings Lynn. In 2008 he took the British Championship in spectacular style, and came close to taking the National Championship Series.

Stuart thrived from his 2007 World Championship win, and carried the Gold Roof with immense pride. He has developed a reputation for driving hard and uncompromising, putting the bumper in at every opportunity as in his own words he “just wanted to do the Gold Roof justice”.

Stuart is without a doubt, a man to watch if your looking for action.
