Rest in Peace Laurie Starling
Laurie Starling, 29, was shot several times whilst innocently sitting in his Ford Ranger outside his garage on the 24th of July.
Laurie; owner of "The Chop Shop", former judge at Summernats and MotorEx, and this years winner of the Summernats Grand Champion Award for the candy red FB Holden, pictured above, was a prominent figure within the Australian minitruck and custom car scene.
Laurie was loved and held in the highest regard by all of those who knew him, and was said to treat you like "an old mate" even after only a few meetings.
It’s a shock to hear that such a violent, and it has to be said- rare for Australia, crime should befall someone in our car scene.
My condolences to Laurie’s family and friends, and girlfriend, Tiffany.
