Nicky will be talking about his career as a World Rally Championship co-driver. His career in the World Rally Championship lasted from 1990 to 2002, competing alongside a number of drivers and has rallied for the World’s best manufacturer teams. In total Nicky has won 21 World Championship rallies with victories all over the globe with his first WRC win in the Rally Argentina in 1993 with Juha Kankkunen in a Toyota Celica.
In 1997 he joined Colin McRae with the 555 Subaru World Rally Team and the pair two won 17 rallies together, these victories shared between the Subaru and Ford rally teams. With 27 podium finishes and having gained 183 WRC points there is a fantastic depth of knowledge and a lot of great experiences and stories. Between 2002 and 2006 his professional career was slowing down after a career that lasted for 13 years, but Grist and McRae still competed together on a number of events as much for fun as well as for Skoda in the WRC.
Nicky will be bringing his Toyota Celica Rally car for display on the evening. This is an ex-factory Toyota Celica rally car that he and Juha Kannkunen won Rally Portugal in 1994. More here.
