Career

Pre-Formula One

Between 1960 and 1962, Ganley competed in many events throughout New Zealand driving a Lotus Eleven. Throughout this period, he was earning a living by working as a foreman for a concreting company.

In 1970, Ganley finished second to Peter Gethin in the British Formula 5000 championship. This caught the attention of the BRM Formula One team, who signed him to a contract for 1971.

Formula One

In 1971, Ganley started off the season promisingly with fifth place at the non-championship Race of Champions.cite web

] At the end of 1971, having scored two points finishes during the year, Ganley was awarded the "Wolfgang von Trips Memorial Trophy" for the best performance by a newcomer to Grand Prix racing.

Post-Formula One

Ganley's Tiga team had plans to compete in Formula One in 1978, with the Finnish driver Mikko Kozarowitzky, but the project didn't succeed due to a lack of funding.cite web
