A Canadian who had been born in Britain, Cannon in fact spent the early part of his career in California, where he began racing an Elva Courier in 1960. He drove a variety of powerful sports machines in the early 1960s before concentrating on the popular Can-Am series.

Though his car was somewhat outdated, he put up a number of fine performances, none better than in the wet at Laguna Seca in 1968 when he lapped the field to score an amazing win. This success led to a drive in Formula A in 1969 and an opportunity to drive single-seaters at last. John won three rounds and finished fourth in the championship. The next year he took the SCCA Formula A title and then set about a completely new challenge, tackling the US GP in a BRM and the Questor GP in a March 701, as well as a full season in European F2, achieving moderate success.

It was back to the USA and the L & M F5000 series for 1972, although he also drove in some British F5000 rounds and was right on the pace. Thereafter Cannon continued racing in the formula which had brought him so much success, spiced with occasional drives in USAC and Can-Am.
