Grant takes to the track for British Rally competitions

Grant’s logo has been getting around quite recently; both up in the skies at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and down on the ground with Bath Rugby Club’s new season kits. For those of you who follow the fast cars on the rally track, you may also have seen the Grant logo on display there too!

This year, Chris is participating in rallies which are taking place throughout the UK and Grant is pleased to support Chris and his team in their upcoming races.

Chris will be taking to the track again later this year

Chris is racing in a Works Opel Adam R2 car and one of his first rallies was the BRC race which took place in Ulster earlier in the month. Following this rally, Chris will also be taking part in four further competitions including: Jersey Rally in October, the Rockingham Stages in December, Brands Hatch Stages in January (an event which Chris won last year), and finally the Epynt Rally in Wales which is also taking place in early 2017.

All of these events are being televised so if you enjoy watching car racing, look out for Chris competing on the tracks in his car which has been Grant branded.
