Profile – Barry New

Find out more about Barry New and his passion for cars and motorbikes.

I have been involved in the automotive industry for over 25 years. I have a great deal of experience with car care/cleaning, running mechanical workshops (Shelly BMW Wellington). I have sales and finance experience covering cars, and also motorcycles from my time with Sawyer Motorcycles Wellington.

I am a very keen car enthusiast and really enjoy every aspect of cars.

As an example of my experience I have been responsible for some time now for looking after, cleaning, organising servicing and arranging sale and purchase of a private collection of 12 cars and motorcycles, including Aston Martin, Rolls Royce, BMW, Mercedes, Range Rover, MV Agusta, Triumph and Suzuki Motorcycles.

I have been racing motorcycles competitively for about 30 years, building, modifying and maintaining my own race bikes. I have also been running a Motorcycle Race Team since 2003. Currently I am restoring a 1980 model Suzuki GSX1100 back to its former glory.

I am a life member of Victoria motorcycle club.
