Not everyone was convinced, however, with one person suspecting that Grant was being ‘strategic’ in sharing the tearful tale. 

‘I feel Grant is too strategic with his stories. Eg that last story told everyone he a) is good at motor sport b) cares deeply for his family and c) supports his daughter pursuing no-trad sports for women Its a bit too convenient in my opinion’ they said.  

During the episode, Grant recalled how he broke his coccyx when he crashed into a tree going 165km an hour, while competing in the Lake Mountain sprint in 2017 in Melbourne, as part of the Australian Rally Championships.
