James Garner 1928-2014


A great movie career, for us he will always be Pete Aron but also a great life in Motorsport.

Garner entered the Baja 1000 in a 1970 Cutlass 422







Garner was team owner of American International Racing which scored a second place at the 1969 24 Hours of Daytona in a Lola T70 MkIII with Lothar Motschenbacher  and Ed Leslie.

You can read a nice remembrance of that race by our old friend James Galanos (a.k.a. Nigel Smukatelli)  HERE
