Grahame Davis is a British former auto racing driver. He has competed in the British Touring Car Championship[1] driving a semi-works Rover 216 GTi built by his own Moto-Build company with engines prepared by rallying star Tony Pond. Davis entered four events in 1991, but started only one race. [2]The project was costly, and with no official financial support from Rover Group, the car suffered from a lack of development. Unfortunately, Rover withdrew backing for the project altogether during the season and the team disappeared from the grid, despite tentative plans to compete in the 1992 season.[3]

He competed in the 1980 Willhire 24 Hour race, driving an MGB. The car was damaged during the race, but Davis' team fought back to finish 16th. Davis was once European Stock Car Champion.[4] After driving he went into racing management, including the BTCC efforts of GR Asia.[5] Today, he concentrates on his business preparing performance parts for Rover and Lotus vehicles.
