Born in 1961, Stig developed a passion for mechanics at a relatively early age. As a teenager he soon became involved with

improving the performance of mopeds, motorcycles and then cars, something that led him to an involvement in the straight-line

sport driving a Chevrolet Corvette which he constructed using components from sundry sources--- and the body of which was

formed by him using a friend’s ’Vette as a buck and molding fiberglass on top of that.

From small beginnings in drag racing, the innovative competitor moved up the ranks to a point where in 1988 he campaigned a

Top Methanol Dragster prior to joining the elite Top Fuel class in 1995 with an entry which he raced throughout Europe with more

than a modicum of success through the millennium.

There then followed a racing hiatus as he built up a successful grandstand rental business in his home country of Denmark.

Subsequent import of a McKinney chassis from the States saw him participating in the prestigious FIA European Drag Racing

Championship Series, where he quickly made a name for himself as a driver of note.

As time went by, he developed a routine whereby he would compete in the FIA events during the five-month spring/summer season and

then race against the best American competitors at selected NHRA national events such as those held in Pomona, Las Vegas and Gainesville.

In June 2013, Stig became the first European driver to break the 4-second ET barrier when he recorded a track and European record of 3.95

seconds at Sweden’s Tierp Arena. More recently, he has driven at South African races held at Tarlton International Raceway near Johannesburg,

where he also assisted others in a tuning capacity.

Stig finished the 2016 FIA season in second place, garnering wins at two of the six-race series, was runner-up at one and was pole qualifier

at four of the sextet.

In preparation for his firm intention to annexe championship honors in 2017, the fan favorite driver is seeking marketing partners desirous

of involvement with a high-profile, professional team with associated mutual benefits from all involved parties.

To this extent, he is looking for support in the form of sponsorship monies, supply of discounted components and gratis consumables.
