Garry is the proprietor of "Big Bang Engines" and would have to be one of the most successful riders in Motolite and Superlite racing. Always innovative and on the leading edge of technology his bikes are always running at the front and with more and more riders beating a path to his dyno the standard of competition keeps improving.
Always helpful (as most Bucket Racers are) there isn't any engineering or tuning task that he can't handle.
