Michael was a man who achieved so much in his racing career and was an absolute master when it came to building, preparing and racing speedway vehicles.
Just in Speedcars alone he won four Australian Speedcar Championships, seven WA Speedcar Championships, 36 feature races at Claremont Speedway, claimed the 50-lap Derby in Auckland, New Zealand against the top Americans and New Zealanders and won feature races in the USA.
‘Figs’ was also an accomplished sprintcar racer, being the AHG Sprintcar Series champion in 2003-4.
He won the Krikke Boys Shootout twice, was a 360 WA Sprintcar Champion and won 14 feature races in the AHG Sprintcar Series.
This Saturday night it is all about celebrating Michael’s achievements and a star-studded field has gathered.
In The Pool Shop Group Speedcars alone we have 35 teams ready to go including five American and 12 interstate teams.
A strong 26-car field is also ready for round two of the Wormall Civil Sprintcar track championship and the Quest Apartments Rockingham Late Models are also back for another session of Super Speedway action.
Rounding out the show will be round one of the Carbusters WA Demolition Derby Championship.
Michael Figliomeni was known as the ‘Magic Man’ and this Saturday night there will be plenty of Magic right here at the Perth Motorplex.
Make sure you don’t miss this one!
