CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Gary has been racing motorcycles since 1971 and isn't showing any signs of slowing down yet; in 2013, at age 62, he posted his fastest lap time ever at Atlantic Motorsports Park (AMP), where he has raced since 1974. He has raced at track all over Canada and the United States and has brought home numerous trophies, including three road racing championships. His career started in the Junior class and progressed to Expert by 1972. In 1988 he switched to vintage bikes, a move that gave his racing career as second life. He has served as an event organizer at AMP and also helped bring about a major change in safety by eliminating mixed competition (cars and bikes).
