Al Pease

Inducted 1998 – Competitor – Road Racing


It is doubtful that any other driver in the history of Canadian motorsport has collected more trophies than Al Pease, winning a steady stream of regional and national championships in a variety of cars for almost 30 years. He drove a Gurney Eagle in the first Formula1 Grand Prix of Canada at Mosport in 1967, and he won the last race ever at Harewood in a Brabham BT21 in1970. He was also instrumental in getting the CASC to allow sponsors’ names on the side of racing cars, paving the way for a whole new generation of professional Canadian racing drivers.
