Tom Johnston began racing in 1962 at the age of twenty on airport circuits in the Prairies.

Over the years he has participated in well over 300 automobile race events at tracks across North America, as a driver, car designer and manufacturer, and team owner.

In 1962 he left Edmonton, Alberta for the North Shore of Vancouver, where he founded Thomas E. Johnston Engineering Inc. to co-ordinate his many and varied motor sport activities.

In 1998, Tom was honoured by being inducted into the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame.

Tom, the author of Sports Car Road Racing in Western Canada, is a racer still at it, running his collection of historic cars at tracks close (and some not so close) to his home in West Vancouver, British Columbia, where he lives with his wife, Sharon.
