Grant obtained his drivers licence in 1965 and gained racing experience at club and Saloon Car Association meetings over the next 15 years. He ventured into the Touring Car formula in the early 1980s being placed as high as 2nd overall in the championship in 1981. Grant then took a break from racing, returning in 1994 to take a Class win in the NZ Touring Car Championship. He enjoys both circuit and rally aspects of the sport and his association with Suzuki has provided him with opportunities to compete in both aspects of the sport. Grant is also heavily involved in the organisation of motorsport, organising the Vitara Safari in 1997, the largest gathering of Suzuki Vitaras in the world. A highlight has been the organisation and promotion of the Silverstone Queenstown Gold Rush, Race to the Sky, the immensely successful hill climb and sister event to the Pikes Peak event in the U.S.A. Grant had a heart stopping moment during practice for the 1998 AMP Bathurst 1000. Break failure resulted in serious injury that could have cost him his life. After a period of hospitalisation Grant made a successful recovery only to have his race car stolen on it's return to NewZealand. He is currently undertaking a feisability study to bring the Australian V8 Supercars to Auckland, New Zealand
