Grayson Car Company was founded on 1963, with an only and clear objetive, winning races.
Tommy Grayson was his founder, born in 1931 on Doncaster, Great Britain. And its considered one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers of all time. With the stunnishing amount of 2 world Championships on his Career.
But then, on the early 90s, he, with 62 years Old, decided to build, to create, to perform, one of the greatest race Cars of all time… And he did… But sadly… he didnt even knew about that.
The Grayson Havoc Twin Turbo was, a truly 4 seater supercar from the 90s, with a Twin Turbocharged 7 litre V12 developed by Reiter, making 570hp on the street Spec. Then the Grayson Team made his Magic on one of the Roadcars, and then, they made a monster.
Instead of using forced induction, they kept the car naturally aspirated, due to Reliability issues, but that didnt stop the car for being powerful at all, the GT LM Spec made around 730hp, which was an impressive amount of power for that era.
The car Raced in the FIA GT Championship, on the GT1 and the GT2 categories. And It won only at the year 2000, on the GT2 Category.
The Cerberus-Racing was their main enemy, with their brand new Thunder from the 95, they were unstoppable, winning 2 consecutive years on the GT2 Championship. But that’s a point that I Will Talk about later.
Sadly, the skilled F1 Driver and Founder of Grayson Car Company, passed away on 1999 due to a heart attack, at the age of 68 years Old.
He didnt knew that their Team won the Next year Championship. It was a very hard blow for the motor world. They made a commemorative plaque for him at the school where he studied, in Doncaster, Great Britain. Dedicated by one of the best drivers of that time. Tommy Grayson
