Nicky Grist Motorsports
Westwood Industrial Estate
Nicky Grist Motorsports Ltd was set up in 1995, when Nicky was co-driving for Juha Kankkunen in the works Toyota Castrol Team – and in his all-time favourite rally car, the Celica GT-Four. It was 2006, the year in which Nicky contested his final FIA World Rally Championship event (Rally Turkey, with Colin McRae in a Kronos Racing Citroën Xsara WRC) that the focused moved to the retail and wholesale supply of Stilo helmets and intercoms as their UK distributor, and since then has added top quality motorsport safety products to his range. Since then, Nicky Grist Motorsports has developed into one of the most highly respected, trusted and go-to suppliers of Stilo helmets and intercoms, P1 Advanced Racewear, Turn One, Simpson Sport Hybrid, Monit Rally computers, Walero, Alpinestars Racewear, Stand 21 and its own exclusive NG Brand products (plus a lot more) in the UK and beyond.
Having competed with all of the leading Teams in the World Rally Championship and the best drivers in the world Nicky has won 21 WRC events all around the globe – including two RAC Rally victories with Kankkunen (1993) and McRae (1997), and three victories in his favourite event the Safari Rally, all of these with Colin McRae. Nicky owes much to the safety equipment that surrounded him when things didn’t quite go to plan. The accidents are well documented, but never compromising on safety equipment saw Nicky end an illustrious rally career as fit and as well as he began it.
It’s the highs and lows, the been there and done its, he has the T-shirts and the videos that makes the company’s ‘Selling from Experience’ mantra so accurate and relevant, and all that knowledge and know-how is passed on to his customers.
The technical development of both design and use of super-strong lightweight materials since 2006 has revolutionised the quality of motorsport safety equipment – and it’s a journey that Nicky Grist Motorsports has remained at the forefront of.
