Rally Fans Alert

There's a new podcast just out by Chris Harris talking to former rally co-driver Nicky Grist.
 
Nicky looks back on his long career in motorsport, starting from when he originally set out to become a golf pro and the change of direction that led him through to competition at the highest level, partnering 4 times world champion Juha Kankkunen and latterly, of course, Colin McRae.
 
It's a bit of a marathon production, but I took it in 3-4 bites - and whiled away a bit of time during this lockdown. It also had me reminiscing back to my own - rather less illustrious time in rallysport!
 
I'm a bit older than Nicky, so our paths never really crossed then, although I did meet up with a youthful Colin McRae on several occasions whilst competing in the national championships in the 80's - even provided him with a temporary windscreen when he managed to barrel-roll his Vauxhall Nova on an event we were both competing in. 
 
Here's the link for anyone wishing to check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OkI6-GK4fU.
 
It's a rather good listen actually. 
 
Regards,
 
Clive

Haven't listened to that podcast yet Clive, and will do because Chris Harris
and Edward Lovetts'  Collecting Cars podcasts are a bit rambling but in the main interesting.
 
Particularly good was the one with Harry Metcalf.

That was an enjoyable three hours plus! Not sure he was Colin McRae's greatest fan though.
