Markham ON – September 7, 2012: The Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame is pleased to announce the ninth member of the induction class of 2012. Alan Labrosse will be honoured at the Seventh Annual Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction Banquet and Reunion, which takes place on November 3, 2012 at the Delta Centre-Ville in
Whether lighting up the track or running one, Alan Labrosse has been a figure of renown in all aspects of
competitive motorcycling. A title-winning racer in Formula 1 and 2 series, a successful promoter and an all-round
motorsport business man, Alan has impressed all who have had the fortune to watch him race or work with
him. “Alan’s contribution to this sport is unparalleled,” said Kellee Irwin. “Few people have accomplished so much
both on and off the race course.”
Finding success on the amateur circuit in 125cc and 250cc classes early in his career, Labrosse would turn pro in
1981, winning titles in Formula 1 and 2 series. In 1985 Labrosse claimed an impressive victory at the American
Motorcycle Association’s Formula 1 race in Brainerd and was crowned their Rookie of the Year. Having excelled on
two wheels, Alan proved his mettle as a crossover athlete in 1986, placing second in his F2000 auto racing debut
and winning yet another Rookie of the Year Award. These triumphs at the podium are matched by his success as a
business and promotions leader in the motorsport world. As a dedicated instructor, manager, owner of tracks at
St. Eustache and Ile Notre Dame, and head of two national sanctioning bodies, Alan has made it possible for other
racers to follow in his impressive footsteps–and he has always made it exciting for fans to follow him.
The other motorcycling legends and champions to be officially inducted into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame
at this year’s Hall of Fame banquet and ceremony will be announced over the next few weeks. This accomplished
group of men and women have achieved excellence in one or more competitive disciplines or made a significant
contribution to the well-being, advancement or general positive image of motorcycling in Canada.
