A decent steerer in a number of Holden Geminis in Tassie rallying, ‘Mozza’ was, quite literally, the go-to person in Tasmania if you needed parts, news or just some well rounded advice.
He had worked incredibly hard on his Hobart-based business, Ultimate Subaru Spares, and in more recent years had stopped competing in favour of another love, fishing.
He was part of a radio show talking about the sport in Hobart, and had also spent the past few years putting his heart and soul into the go-karting exploits of his son, Sammy J.
Rallying was never far from his heart though, and each year when Targa Tasmania rolled around, ‘Mozza’ was the man who knew the news. He had “spies” all around the country and could quickly tell you who did what, when and where.
But it was as a human being that the big man really excelled.
There wouldn’t be a person in the world who had a bad word to say about him, and no matter what your connection was to him, he would bend over backwards to assist you in any way he could.
