It is with a heavy heart that we tell you of the passing of Stuart Hilborn. Stuart was 96 when he left us earlier this morning.
Stuart’s 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 150mph mark
at the dry lakes. Hilborn fuel injectors w...ent
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 60 years, along with his
daughter Edris and his son Duane, 4 grandchildren and 2 great
Stuart’s wit, charisma and passion will be truly missed.
