Guy holds a degree in production and distribution of electrical power. Thirty-six candidates began this cycle, eleven succeeded to get the diploma. Guy was the first of those eleven candidates and the only one with the top of the class distinction. He also holds a degree in thermodynamic and thermal engines: gas engines, diesel engines, turbines, and jet engines. At the end of the cycle, he wrote an essay covering the treatment of supercharged engines. He had to defend this essay in front of the Jury.
He spent fourteen years in Africa, twelve for a Railway Company. Just before turning thirty years old, he was chosen as head of the diesel - electric and diesel - hydraulic locomotives main workshop. When he left the Railway Company due to political unrest (1976), he got the distinction of "Agent d'Elite" from the Company.
In Belgium, aside of the Chrysler-Jeep Dealership and later the Ferrari Dealership, a branch of his business was tuning two De Tomaso Panteras for the BeNeLux Championship; many podiums rewarded his efforts and in 1979 Guy won the FIA Group Four driving his own Light Weight Pantera.
Following this success, customers came to ask him to prepare BMWs for the European Touring Championship (1982 and 1983). They earned their first podium at the first race (Sicily) followed by many others.
Right after the last lap of the last 1983 race, a Director of Volvo Belgium met him in the racetrack paddocks and asked if he wanted to prepare two Volvo 240 Turbos for the 1984 European Touring Championship. After a (not too easy) meeting in Göteborg, Sweden, he accepted this serious challenge. The reward came in February 1985 in Wellington, New Zealand, when one of the two Volvos won the four-hour race, beating all the BMWs and Rovers Vitesse of New Zealand despite arriving on the scene after the last Saturday qualification due to an Airline problem, and starting from the last line on the starting grid.
In 2003, he decided to retire and moved with his wife to South Carolina in May 2004, finally enjoying a quiet life, his GT cars, his aerobatic airplane for four years until... His son Gregory joined him in SC, and they started a new GTM - GTM and SON - during the 2008 depression year. It was a success right from the start!

From an early age Gregory was immersed into the world of motorsport via the family business in Belgium. Following in his father’s footsteps he graduated St. Luc’s College in Mons, Belgium, with a degree in Electro Mechanics and Automotive Technology in 2001.
Gregory embarked on his own career shortly before graduation, when offered a position as a mechanic at one of the oldest certified Ferrari service centers, in Bologna, Italy. Within a few months this led to the opportunity to also travel and work as part of the Ferrari Challenge Italia, for a three-year period. In 2003, he came back to Belgium to work for the family business, while also spending two seasons from 2004-2005 working as a mechanic for the Speed Racing team in Formula Renault 1.6.
In 2006, Gregory joined the D’leteren Gallery in Brussels as a lead mechanic. He remained there until leaving Europe to move to the United States in 2008, where he now runs GTM & SON with his father.
Aside from the time Gregory has spent restoring, repairing, and maintaining high-performance vehicles, he also has experience on the racetrack. He started Kart racing at 9 years old, his preference was endurance in which he achieved multiple podiums, he also became an instructor at age 17. In his 20’s he participated in classic endurance racing, and later he occasionally worked as an instructor for World Class Driving and Mercedes of Buckhead.
Mary joined GTM and Son in April 2021, after resigning from a corporate controller position to work alongside Gregory at his family business. She manages the accounting, HR, and general office responsibilities, and brought with her a strong background in accounting and business management. She holds a BA in accounting, having graduated magna cum laude.
She also owned her own successful small business for seven years prior to changing the focus of her career to accounting specifically.
Her work as a corporate controller focused heavily on the automotive industry, as well as commercial automotive insurance, giving her the professional experience needed to fit in perfectly at GTM and SON. Mary also enjoys working on, modifying, and driving her cars as a hobby - especially at the track.
