Owen was a director of a jewellery business in St Helier, Jersey, who not unnaturally gained his early competition experience on the Bouley Bay hill-climb in the early fifties with a Skinner special. By the mid-fifties, Arthur and his friend Bill Knight had acquired a potent Cooper sports car and set about breaking speed records at Montlh?ry and Monza.

Though he was only an occasional circuit racer, Owen was invited to take part in the 1960 Italian Grand Prix, which was boycotted by the major English teams because the organisers insisted on including the banked part of the circuit. Arthur then turned his attention to the hills, unleashing his 2.2-litre Type 53 Cooper 'Lowline' on the opposition. After coming close to winning the British hill-climb championship in 1961, he made no mistake the following year.

In 1963 and 1964 Owen raced a Lotus 23 sports car, and he was one of a select group of drivers invited to compete in the inaugural race held at the Suzuka circuit.
