As a writer for RACER, Penthouse, Car and Driver and the author and co-author of several books on racing legends, he has covered over 750 races in the past 30 years. Greg Moore: a Legacy of Spirit (Whitecap Books $87.20) written with Dan Proudfoot and Jim Taylor includes a foreword by Jacques Villeneuve. The book explores local BC contender Greg Moore’s short, but remarkable life.

Photos and memorabilia trace Moore’s life and career and tell the story of a remarkable athlete and a life lived well, but done too soon.
