Resident - Halifax
George has been our "watchful eye" in one of our Halifax buildings since 1988! But like many of our long term residents George has an incredible story that we are proud to share with the CAPREIT community from coast to coast.
George was inducted into the Maritime Motorsports Hall of Fame in October 2015 and has countless sports car highlights since the 1960's.
George is one of the true veterans of motorsports in the Atlantic Region. He has been an official or competitor in club, regional, and national events since 1972. He has driven in hill climbs, road racing, sprints, rallys, and auto slaloms, with impressive results.
He has won the Atlantic Sports Car Club Autoslalom Championship a record 13 times; the regional overall championship a record 8 times; and is a 3-time national class champion. He is also an avid remote control model boat builder.
He is only one of three drivers nationally to compete in every "Canadian Autoslalom Championship" held from 1972 to 1991. He is a competing member of the Atlantic Sports Car Club for 42 consecutive years - 1972 to present.
In 1989, he was recognized by the Halifax City Regional Library for his outstanding volunteer service; in 2000 by the Maritime Ship Modelers Guild for his support of their Millenium Model Boat Show; in 2004 by Maritime Museum of the Atlantic for his commitment and dedication as a Museum Volunteer.
He is a starter for the Road-Racers of Atlantic Canada at Atlantic Motorsport Park and a Pit Exit Official.
It is residents like George that truly make our communities "home". Congratulations George!
