Garry Dickinson is back at Auto 66 Club for 2017, this time not as a racer but as a Clerk of the Course. Having just obtained his probationary licence, Garry is excited to be back in the racing world and offering a genuine insight to the officials from his experience as a rider.
'After spending thirty years road racing , all of which I've been involved with the Auto 66 Club I have decided that I want to be involved again. Since my race career ended abruptly in 2008 at Oliver's Mount , I've always wanted to get back involved & put something back into the club & sport which I've had so much pleasure.
I'm really excited now to be involved in an official role.. and bring my racing experience to the new role. Oliver's Mount & the Auto 66 have been a big part in my career, and I'm looking forward to this new era, and working and learning from everyone involved.'
Scott Beaumont, Marketing Director at Oliver's Mount said:
'Having a rider with the experience of Garry join our officials team is very exciting for us. Bringing his racing knowledge and combining that with the rule book from the other side of the fence will give us some genuine insight into what riders go through and the decisions that we need to make.'
