Barry started racing back in 2006 with a Ducati 748. In 2007 Barry converted the 748 to a 916 and was able to achieve 3rd place in “Super Twins” in the EMRA championship. He had the engine rebuilt in 2008 but suffered mechanical problems and was only able to race a couple times. One of the races Barry started 17th place and was able to finish in 6th position.
In 2009 Barry began racing the Ducati 848. But in the 2nd race of the year lost the front end and broke his left collarbone and tore the LCL ligament in his left knee.
Barry sold the 848 in 2010 and took a few years off.
In 2015 Barry purchased a 2007 Ducati 1098s race bike. This bike has had much work done to her and has been raced in “Expert Superbike class achieving 3rd place podiums.
Barry is looking forward to joining “Taylor Racing” and racing as a team. This sport is very demanding in many areas, and to work as a team will help all involved.

Racing motorcycles is our passion!
Over 20 years ago Taylor Racing was started with one bike, a small pick-up truck and a deep love of racing, competition and motorcycles. Over the years Taylor Racing has competed across North America aboard Ducati’s. Some of the events include Washington Motorcycle Road Racing Associations endurance series, multiple series with the Calgary Motorcycle Road Racing Association, where in 2008 we won both the Ducati cup and Open Thunder series championships. Numerous rounds at club level series throughout the northern United States including a wildcard appearance at the 2009 FIM World Super Sport round at Miller Motorsport Park in Utah.
Since 2006 Taylor Racing has also been involved in mentoring new riders and supporting the race community here in southern Alberta. In 2006 Taylor Racing organized the Ducati Cup, a series based on the very popular European 848 Challenge Cup. In 2007 after much hard work the first successful season was held racing at the Race City complex in Calgary. It continued with great support until the closure of Race City in 2011. Taylor Racing also worked closely with Brad Gavey’s racing school providing guest instructors as well as with Ducati North America during events at Edmonton’s Stratotech Racing complex. During the 2015 season, Taylor Racing competed in the EMRA’s Formula Thunder series returning to the podium once again.
Regardless of the many different roads that led us to where we are now. The Taylor Racing team is driven by the desire to continually compete at higher levels providing our sponsors with quality exposure, build race and road bikes of uncompromising quality to our customers and offer specialty services to Ducatista like ourselves.
