Tributes have been pouring in from across the country for the Osgodby man tragically killed in a road collision at Holton le Moor last month.

Stuart Carter was known across the country for his skills as a National Hot Rod driver.

In his 10-year career, he had amassed more than 600 trophies, competing at both national and international events.

But his dad Peter had just two words to describe his son - “Top man.”

Stuart grew up in the Brigg area, attending Brigg Primary and the Sir John Nelthorpe Schools.

He had always worked with his dad and when Peter and his wife Vida took over the Horseworld Equestrian centre in Osgodby seven months ago, Stuart came too.

He managed the site and became the official course builder.

“Stuart wasn’t horsey, but he was a great course builder,” said Vida.

“He had just completed the training and received his official course building badge the day before the accident.

“He was so proud of the badge.”

The centre paid tribute to Stuart at the course on Bank Holiday Monday, where his young step-brother Josh jumped the course to honour a bet Stuart had made.

“I didn’t want him to welch on his bet,” said Josh.

Stuart was a much loved member of the family and will be greatly missed by them all.

Stuart’s funeral takes place on Wednesday, June 5,, at Woodlands Crematorium in Scunthorpe at 1.20pm.
