Like many others I remember Ross as an absolute gentleman, I watched him as a racer and was impressed with his skill and smoothness, and what about his cars neat and tidy as well as value for money for sponsors, Later after Ross hung up the helmet, he and Carol would always come to Bunbury and come down to the club rooms for a beer after, yeh me and Greg Freeman had a few beers with Ross : Brian Moyle.

It is with heavy heart that we tell you of the passing of Stuart Hilborn, Stuart was 96 when he left us earlier this morning.
Stuarts passion for racing and speed led him to invent the constant flow mechanical fuel injector, Shunned by his peers, he refined the design to be the first to propel a race car over the magical 150 mph at the dry lakes.
Hilborn injectors went on to dominate the Indianapolis 500 and then any racing venue that required maximum speed with an internal combustion engine.
Stuart is survived by his wife Ginny of sixty years, along with his daughter Edris and his son Duane, four grand children and two great grand children.
Stuarts wit, charisma and passion will be truly missed, thank you. Hilborn Injection.

Bill was a respected jeweller in Bunbury for many years, and had a passion for racing cars, nothing pleased him more than to race his Simca around the closed of streets of Bunbury during the 1960's, This Simca handled like a dream but was quite under-powered, so as time passed Bill decided to take up the opportunity of racing a 48 series Holden owned and tuned by a local Garage owner and engine builder in Terry Veale, This car Bill never really came to terms with the power and retired from motor racing, and followed his other passion, Sailing.
