Grant was born on May 5, 1972 in Auckland, New Zealand and has lived in New Zealand, Australia and now Dubai, United Arab Emirates for the past 14 years.

Like most keen gamers and motorsport fans he started SimRacing on a console with a Logitech wheel and pedals bolted to a table racing some of the early F1, Grand Turismo and Rally titles. He progressively upgraded his SimRacing hardware to a Playseat and continued racing on consoles for many years until he discovered iRacing in 2015. Once he discovered iRacing it was time to get serious with the upgrades, so he went from Logitech wheels and pedals to all Fanatec gear, custom gaming PC and Obutto Revolution rig.

Since meeting Peter Klawitter (team founder) he has since upgraded to an aluminium profile SimRig with an OSW direct drive, custom made steering wheels, Heusinkveld Ultimate pedals and he uses VR for the ultimate immersion experience.

He has a fully modified track ready Chevrolet CR8 (Holden Clubsport R8) which he takes to the track from time to time but due to it being expensive to maintain he prefers SimRacing. He is a keen motorsport fan and follow the V8 Supercars in Australia and he has done numerous track days and experiences in New Zealand and in the United Arab Emirates.
