“Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting”
Grant Williams started his racing career in 1995 taking the title of the youngest champion in the Jaguar XK Saloon Car Championship in a MK2 Jaguar.
This followed by his father, Tony Williams handing over the reigns of the iconic MK1 Jaguar ‘Buy1’ for Grants first Goodwood Revival in 1999, a penalty stripped him of his pole position but led to one of the most exciting races of Grant’s career.
For many years to follow Grant and the Williams family have been a staple part in the Jaguar and historic racing world.

Say Hello to Grant
“What a track show finale!!! Richard Browning from Gravity Industries and Grant Williams smoke out the audience with this incredible stunt”
Chris Evans CarFest organsier & star of TV and Radio
In 2018 Silverstone Classic held their BTCC 60th anniversary celebrations. The on-track parade had a procession of iconic cars that had run in the championship during 1958-2018. ‘Buy1’ ran in the British Saloon Car Championship in 1959/60 with driver Roy Salvadori, and 1961 with driver Peter Sargent.
Grant Williams and Buy1 are always a crowd pleasing combination at the Goodwood Revival, a regular frontrunner in the St Mary’s Trophy for many years. With 10 top 3 finishes out of 13 events attented, it’s safe to say that Grant and ‘Buy1’ are a constant threat amongst the historic grids.
