Late Model State Champion Brent Vosbergen capped off a magnificent season of racing when he won the 2021/22 “Driver Of The Year Award” at the Perth Motorplex Speedway Track Championship Awards night in The Oval Room at Leederville Oval at the beginning of May.
It was certainly a wonderful season for Brent Vosbergen who won a remarkable 10 Perth Motorplex Late Model feature races and added a second State Championship to his name.
For his seasons efforts, Brent also won The Perth Motorplex Track Championship Award for Late Models and in a touching moment he was also awarded the annual Figliomini Family “Magic Man” Trophy from Michael Figliomini’s father, Frank.
Perth Motorplex Racing Manager, Gavin Migro said he believed Western Australian Late Models are the best in Australia and a close second to those running in North America and to win ten feature races in one season at the Perth Motorplex puts Brent Vosbergen right up there with the best in the world.
Brent of course is the son of Craig Vosbergen and Grandson of Big Bad Bert Vosbergen, so he has a fair pedigree in the genes and has certainly set the bar very high for next season.
A very gracious winner, Brent thanked his wife Tina for supporting him in his racing and his father Craig in particular and the whole team for all they do in the shed and at the track.
