Michael Garlick has produced and directed over 350 television broadcasts for major international broadcasters including Cox Cable in the United States. Motorsport television coverage became Garlick’s forte and he produced numerous motor racing and sports coverage broadcasts.
Producing a film on Bruce McLaren has been a life long dream for Garlick and he originally started experimenting with this subject at Laguna Seca, California in the mid 1990s. The Bruce McLaren movie is the result of steady development and perseverance over almost twelve years.
Michael himself started racing in the late 1970s with a home built Formula Ford. He raced for several seasons before becoming a professional race mechanic. This took him all over the world preparing Formula Atlantic race cars. He continued to race occasionally in California.
Motor Racing led to a marketing career, which involved the making of television commercials. TV commercials led to him evolving his skills to become a cable television producer and director, primarily with Cox Cable in America and then with Saturn Sport in New Zealand.
