Gary Leitch – Race Engine Builder

Gary brings with him many years of engine building experience getting his start on high performance engines at DART machine over 15 years ago after already spending 15 years in automotive engine rebuilding.

Having built engines with the former AP Performance Racing – with Tim Sauter having much success with Gary’s skills as an engine builder – Tim won the ASA championship in 1999.

After AP Performance Racing closed, Gary continued on with AP Racing Engines until Dec/04 when he decided to go out on his own. Many drivers and owners had been pushing Gary to build engines directly for them for several years and thus Leitch Performance Engines was born. 

With a growing list of racing seasons behind him now, quite a few race series championships and a ton of feature wins, Leitch Performance Engines is fast earning a reputation as a well respected engine builder.   To see the some of the success of LPE engines to date  - check out the Victory Lane pages.

Give Gary a call, you’ll like his prices, but most importantly, you’ll like winning.  Isn’t that what it’s all about?

At Leitch Performance Engines, the customer always comes first. - and quite often, at the track too!
