Alan has been in the retail auto industry since 1984, and the General Manager at
Red Hill Toyota in Hamilton, Ontario since 2016. His love for cars started at an
early age. So early in fact, his parents told him his first real words were “red car”,
referring to his mother’s 1964 Ford Fairlane.

Not only has Alan worked in the retail side of industry for 37 years, he has also
been involved in motorsports since 1979.

When he’s not busy being the General Manager at Red Hill Toyota, Alan and his
team are at their “home” of Alan Balinsky Racing where they build, maintain and
race competition vehicles. In his spare time, as a racing enthusiast Alan actively
competes in road racing events and is an advanced driving coach for select
Advanced Driving Experiences.

Needless to say, Alan’s experience through the years gives him a very unique
perspective and expert knowledge when it comes to all things automotive.

selection, servicing and parts selection, storing your vehicle, or just about any
automotive related topics – you’ll want to follow along as Alan shares his
favourite tips and tricks.
