A new car brings a lot of challenges, but Michael Stewart’s hard-fought second-place finish in last Saturday night’s second Speedcar Super Series round at Brisbane’s Archerfield Speedway in Queensland proved that his best is yet to come in the 2015-16 season.

After two seasons of running a Stealth chassis, the 20-year-old racer from Canberra (ACT) switched to the CP3 chassis designed by New Zealand-based Tim Clark, and Stewart’s opening three outings of the season in the car have certainly been encouraging.


“I had a really strong night at Archerfield Speedway and I was rewarded with a podium result; although, I did have a bit out luck in the feature race when two drivers ahead of me dropped out which elevated me from fourth to second,” Stewart commented, who had battled with power steering woes during the night, which forced him to miss the Dash after he went into it as the second highest point scorer, but thanks to fellow racer Paul Murphy for the loan of his space Fontana power steering pump, he was able to take his place – position six – in the feature race.

“So far this season I’ve gained more confidence with every outing aboard the new car and my results have reflected that.”

In what is Stewart debut season as a Speedcar Super Series contracted driver, he is enjoying taking on some of the country’s leading drivers.

“In the opening two rounds of the Super Series, I have managed to come away with some encouraging results,” the NSW # 51 Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers backed Fontana powered CP3 driver said.

“The Super Series is tough, which includes drivers like current Australian Champion Adam Clarke and reigning Speedcar Super Series Champion Nathan Smee in the field, but running in it is certainly helping me become a better racer.”

Apart from the being a Speedcar Super Series contracted driver this season, Stewart is going to be based at Sydney’s Valvoline Raceway, and that’s going to include the running of the Australian Title at the track in February.

Stewart for this early part of the season has also guest-driven in the Stephen Dillon-owned SA # 9 Fontana powered Breka on a number of occasions: Murray Bridge Speedway club show and the final two Pro Speedcar Week rounds at Whyalla’s Westline Speedway and Murray Bridge Speedway – both in South Australia.

“This deal with Stephen came out of blue, but it has been one I’ve grabbed with both hands – it’s been good,” explained Stewart, who impressed many at the Westline Speedway PSW round after he had narrowly missed out on a podium place in fourth.

“When my schedule allows, I plan to do as many race meetings with Stephen’s team, and I’m very much looking forward to it and being able to expand my knowledge as a racer.”

Stewart is going to be back in action this Saturday night at Geelong’s Avalon Raceway in Victoria driving the SA # 9 car in the annual Beasley Family Memorial, while the following Saturday night (December 5) he will return to his own car for the annual George Tatnell Classic, which doubles as the third Speedcar Super Series round.

Stewart would like to thank all of his 2015-16 season sponsors: Mainline DynoLog Dynamometers, PA & KS Contractors, Fineline Fabrications, Canberra Earthmoving, Mitchell’s Glass Works, P1 Australia, and Berco Engineering. Special thanks to Chris, Glenn, Briahn, Keith and Ian.
