A late starter in racing, having competed in Formula Ford and FB in 1969-70 and become national champion, Barber was still relatively inexperienced when he headed to Europe in 1971 to buy a March 711 (to replace his 701, which had been written off in an early-season crash) which he intended to race in the US L & M F5000 series.

Before shipping the new car back, however, he tackled a few Grands Prix - 'keeping out of the way' - as well as the non-championship Jochen Rindt Memorial Trophy at Hockenheim, in which he managed a worthy sixth place.

Back in America, Barber enjoyed some success in Formula A with the car in 1972 before switching to GT machinery. Since his retirement from racing he has built up one of the world's leading racing schools and, in conjunction with Saab, instigated the very successful single-seater 'Pro Series' - now known as the Barber-Dodge Pro Series in deference to its engine supplier.
