Guest Speaker Revealed for Awards Night

Posted 5 December 2015

Rhyl & District Motor Club are delighted to reveal the Guest Speaker for the Awards Dinner & Dance on Saturday 27 February will be the Welsh born former WRC Co-Driver, Nicky Grist.

Grist’s factory team career in the World Rally Championship lasted from 1993 to 2002. He won 21 rallies with more than one driver, Juha Kankkunen and Colin McRae.

Grist started his career as a golf professional at the Monmouthshire Golf Club, and then joined a local car sales centre, where he was given Sundays off. This gave him the opportunity to enter into the relatively inexpensive motorsport of road rallying. His first rally was the George Ford Pips Rally, held in Caldicott in Wales, in a Ford Escort with Bryn Wiltshire driving.
