Racer, bike shop owner, tour operator, trailride organiser, Ray has been passionately invested in motorcycles in every possible way, since before he shoe-horned an XR350 powerplant into a CR500 chassis as the owner of Australian Dirt Bike Wreckers almost 30 years ago.
Ray sees what's best about motorcycling and motorcyclists like no-one else does, and as such he's perfectly suited to oversee the QMP monolith, negotiate with bureaucracy and steer its long-term direction.
