Alan Grise
Australian Touring Car driver and two time Bathurst 1000 winner.


Allan Grice won the Bathurst classic in 1986 and in 1990, once as a privateer Commodore driver and once as a factory pilot with the Holden Racing Team. His career is as wide and varied as it was successful, becoming known for his Craven Mild Toranas in the mid to late 1970s after being something of a late starter in the sport. He was a regular in Commodores after a very brief stint running BMWs, and regularly proved a thorn in the side of the factory team in the 1980s both at home and abroad. Grice also raced overseas, racing NASCAR in the USA and European touring cars. A veteran of 26 Great Race starts, beginning in 1968 in a Fiat 124 Sport and finishing in 2002 with a short-lived effort in a privateer Falcon AU, Grice is a true legend of the sport.
