He is most closely associated with the late Colin McRae, for whom he was co-driver between 1997 and 2002 in the World Rally Championship. In this role he both replaced, and was succeeded by, Derek Ringer. However, he returned to partner McRae in the Scotsman's final three WRC events in the 2005 and 2006 seasons.
Recently, he has founded the Nicky Grist Co-Driver Academy to help young co-drivers wishing to make an impact in the sport. He is also involved with Nicky Grist Motorsports Ltd, a business which sells motorsport products.
