It was with heavy hearts that we learned of the passing of Stuart Paterson.

Stuart was a dedicated competitor that poured his time and heart into seeing the Queensland Clubman Sportsracers category grow to what it is today. This category features some of the fastest cars in Australia; which Stuart took pride in managing and racing. Until his final days, Stuart was dedicated to the future of the category and was making plans for their last round in 2017 and managing the booking of rounds for their 2018 season as late as Wednesday night.

Stuart was a rare breed of person and he will be sadly missed; the type of enthusiast that keeps grassroots motorsports alive and thriving in this country. Stuart’s dedication and passion will be sorely missed  - he leaves an incredible legacy for sports cars in Queensland.
Stuart was a friend to each and every one of us at Queensland Raceways and we will miss him greatly. We all offer our most sincere condolences to his family, friends, and his fellow competitors, Motorsport has lost a champion who won by just being that special kind of Australian; a good bloke.
