Rally co-driving legend, Nicky Grist, has been confirmed as the latest in a line of extremely well-known stars of the sport set attend Rallyday 2019 on 21 September at Castle Combe Circuit.
Grist occupies a very special place within British motorsport; not least as he is the UK’s most successful co-driver. Grist’s career saw him fight at the very top of the rallying world (and in one of the sport’s most competitive eras).
The Welshman’s dulcet tones provided the background to a generation of video game fans, and he’s since become a household name, a much loved and revered part of the British motorsport landscape.
Nicky Grist’s attendance at Rallyday this year is brilliant news for anyone with an interest in rallying, particularly those that followed the sport in the nineties and early noughties. He will be on-hand to talk us through this significant era, as well as shedding some light on his close friendship with Colin McRae – Britain’s first WRC Champion and an undisputed rallying great.
Grist is also a formidable driver in his own right and will be taking part in the ‘Legends Stage’ (new for 2019), driving his recently-restored Toyota Celica ST 185 which was built by Toyota Team Europe and used by Carlos Sainz and Didier Auriol.
