Career[edit]

Early years 1985–1989[edit]

World Rally Championship[edit]

1990–1993 Ford / Toyota[edit]

Main article: Toyota Team Europe

Grist became a full-time professional co-driver with the Ford Motor Company and driver Malcolm Wilson. Competed in the British Open Championship in a Sierra Sapphire Cosworth. Also took part in a test and development programme with Ford’s new 4x4 Sapphire Cosworth, consisting of three WRC events, giving Grist his first experience of a WRC event outside Britain. In 1991, he competed in six rounds of the WRC with Malcolm Wilson and the Ford Motor Company. In 1992, only competed in the Safari Rally of the WRC with Toyota Team Europe with driver Mikael Ericsson where the team came fourth. Also co-ordinated with the team for Rally Acropolis and Argentina giving him an insight into the inside working of Team 2.

1993–1997 Mitsubishi & Toyota[edit]

Grist joined Mitsubishi with driver Armin Schwarz, in the WRC,[2] but during the Rally Argentina joined Juha Kankkunen. With Kankkunen he went onto to win the rally Argentina, Grist’s first WRC win. Kankkunen and Grist went onto win two more rallies, Rally Australia and the Rally GB. This secured Kankkunen’s fourth WRC win. Half way through 1993 Toyota and Kankkunen bought Grist’s contract and he moved to the Toyota team full-time competing in the Celica GT4 ST185. The season began well with a second in Monte Carlo and a win in Portugal, but during the Safari Rally, crashed at 180 km/h after hitting a pothole that had formed due to the rain. By mid season Grist and Kankkunen were tied at the top of the points with Carlos Sainz, but after mechanical problems and the a crash in Finland put them 20 minutes behind and they finished the WRC in 3rd position. In 1995, with only two rallies to go, Kankkunen and Grist started the Rally Catalunya in a comfortable lead, seven points ahead of Colin McRae and the 555 Subaru World Rally Team, when they crashed and had to retire. After the Rally Catalunya, Toyota were found guilty of the implementation of illegal turbo restrictor bypasses on their ST205 cars. The team was given a 12-month ban by the FIA. In 1996, Grist competed with Kankkunen for private Toyota teams in three events and finished fourth in Sweden, third in Indonesia and second in Finland.

1997–2002 Subaru & Ford[edit]

Joined the 555 Subaru World Rally Team on a two year contract as Colin McRae’s co-driver. With 6 retirements and 5 wins, Grist and McRae came 2nd overall with 62 points, giving the Subaru team the manufacturer’s title.[3] In 1998, Grist and McRae had 5 retirements and 3 wins together with the same team, with the win in Corsica, giving Grist his first win on tarmac. The team finished 3rd with 45 points and gave Subaru their third consecutive manufacturer’s title. In 1999 Grist and McRae moved from Subaru to the M-sport Ford team of Malcolm Wilson, Grist’s driver during the 1990 to 1991 WRC seasons, where they had two consecutive wins at the Safari Rally and Rally Portugal. However, due to reliability issues with the new Ford Focus WRC they only managed to finish 6th in the WRC with 23 points. The 1999 season of retirements only finished in the February 2000 when they finished 3rd in the Swedish Rally. However, even with two wins and three seconds to support Sweden’s third place a further 6 retirements after the initial Monte Carlo Rally retirement meant that they ended up 4th in the championship with 43 points overall. With the improvement in reliability of the Focus WRC 00 towards the later half of 2000 Grist joined with McRae, signed a further two year contract with the M-Sport Ford Team, and started 2001 with three retirements and a 9th at the Swedish Rally. The middle of the 2001 season showed better with 3 consecutive wins, followed by a retirement on the Safari Rally, and then two podium finishes. The season ended with a 2nd place in the championship and 42 points. 2002 was Grist’s last competitive season of WRC, and again saw him co-drive for McRae and the M-Sport Ford Team. During this year, there were 4 retirements and 2 wins, one of these being the Acropolis Rally, making four consecutive wins in Greece, and the other being the last Safari Rally, on its 50th anniversary. However, at the Rally Australia after a disagreement between Grist and McRae, Derek Ringer, McRae’s old co-driver took over and finished the championship with McRae.[4]

Later career[edit]

2003–2005 Television[edit]

Main article: Speed (TV channel)

In 2003, Grist began working for TV, on the programmes that produced the rally coverage for broadcasters around the world. He primarily worked for two different programmes, Speed TV in the USA and the other the review programme that went out worldwide for all the WRC rounds. Grist worked as the presenter of the programme for Speed TV, explaining the rules and showing why a particular stage is a challenge. With the review programme, Grist worked as much behind the scenes, helping recce the rallies for great TV positions, planning the overall programmes, identifying the splits so that journalists can ask why a particular competitor did well or not.

2005–2006 WRC[edit]

In 2005, Grist again joined Colin McRae as co-driver, in a Škoda Fabia WRC, for the Rally GB. It was in this rally that Markko Märtin’s co-driver Michael Park, from Newent, Gloucester, a long term friend of Grist’s was killed when their Peugeot hit a tree. Grist and McRae finished 7th just ahead of fellow Brit, Mark Higgins with Sébastien Loeb refusing the ten points from that stage win, in respect for the loss of his friend. Later that same year they raced the Skoda in Rally Australia, and in some stages leading the way, however, team mechanics issues resulted in the two having to retire.

2006–2007[edit]

In 2006 Grist joined McRae for X games 12 in Los Angeles, California, America, and throughout the televised event they fought for the lead, however on the last jump they landed badly, popped a tyre and then rolled but still managed to right themselves, losing only 2 seconds in the roll, getting to the finish line only half a second behind Travis Pastrana and in front of Ken Block bringing them to the attention of many Americans who had never heard of them before. The last WRC rally together was at the Rally of Turkey, in 2006, the last competitive WRC event for both Grist and McRae, but they were unable to finish and retired on the last stage, due to alternator problems with their Citroen Xsara WRC of the Kronos Citroen World Rally Team.

On 15 September 2007, McRae and his 5 year old son, Johnny, with Graeme Duncan and Johnny’s six year old friend Ben Porcelli were killed in a helicopter crash, piloted by McRae, near his home in Lanark, Scotland. The funeral for Colin and Johnny McRae took place on Wednesday 26 September at Daldowie Crematorium near Glasgow where McRae and his son were cremated in the same coffin.[5]

2007–today[edit]

Grist regularly sits in the co-drivers seat for various drivers such as the Roger Albert Clark Rally and many more. In 2010 He will be attending the Rally Trinidad event in March with driver Mark Higgins 3-Time British Rally Champion will be driving a Grp N Mitsubishi Evo IX

Nicky Grist Motorsport[edit]

In 2006, Ludovico and Elena Fassitelli, the Italian owners and creators of Stilo helmets, approached Grist to become the sole UK distributor of the Stilo range and through this he set up Nicky Grist Motorsport, based near his home in Pontrilas, Herefordshire. Through this retail outlet, Grist stocks quality racewear and accessories for all rally, road and track competitors, as well as providing all competitors with Stilo helmets, intercoms and HANS devices. With customers such as Petter Solberg, Ken Block, Kris Meeke and Sébastien Loeb, Grist is still in touch with all that is happening in the WRC. In addition, Grist is unofficially a consultant to the FIA WRC, concerned with matters of safety, helmet and HANS device regulations to the British sport. As a Welshman, he gives talks to business through the Welsh Assembly, and is a regional judge for the F1 in Schools competition.

Co-Driver Academy[edit]

Added to his development of the Nicky Grist Motorsport business, Grist is looking to start a co-driver’s academy for young co-drivers to develop their skills and become experienced and skilled co-drivers.

Colin McRae Rally Game[edit]

In 1998, while racing with Colin McRae, Codemasters produced a game for the PC and PlayStation console, called Colin McRae Rally, in which Grist was the co-driver voice, guiding the gamers round the rally. Based around stages in eight countries it used real drivers and their cars from the 1998 WRC and featured McRae and Grist's Subaru from 1998 on the front cover. Through this Grist’s voice has become familiar to many who played the game. In 1999 Codemasters brought out Colin McRae Rally 2.0, with version 3 following both using Grist’s voice again used for the pacenotes, which was extended to become available to the Xbox. Grist’s voice can be heard co-driving in all the games released up to Colin McRae Rally 2005 (with the exception of Colin McRae Rally 04 where Derek Ringer's voice was used).
