Grant began her karting career aged seven, racing in the East of Scotland Kart Club. After finishing third and second in consecutive years in their Cadet Championship, she secured the 2017 ESKC Junior Championship title in the Minimax class.
In 2020, she became the youngest driver to earn a Motorsport UK Junior Racing Driver Licence in Scotland, before winning the CKRC and BWRDC Kart Sport Championship titles. This was followed by a switch to car racing in 2021, where she drove in the Junior Saloon Car Championship.
Moving over to the UK’s GB4 Championship the following year, Grant finished ninth in the standings, achieving 10 top-10 finishes in the final 12 races of the season.
Speaking about her announcement, Grant said she was ready to seize the new opportunities in the series.
