Professional racing driver Greg Murphy was raised in Hastings, and became involved in motorsports by the time he was eight, going from karts to saloons and single-seaters. First competing at the Bathurst circuit in 1994, he went on to gain the second-best record for a Kiwi with four wins and become one of the best known V8 Supercar drivers in New Zealand.
In 2009, Greg joined Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond presenting Top Gear Live, when it had its first international Live show in Auckland, and again when the show returned in 2010. He is currently a television presenter on #SkySpeed with Stephen McIvor.
