In demand conference speaker and motorsport icon - Greg Murphy's mark on the sport of V8 Supercars, is indisputable. Greg’s flagrant disregard for detractors and adversity has resulted in some of his most memorable performances despite the odds. An attitude applied to both his life and business decision making.
Murph has now taken on a different role than behind the wheel, and is commentator during the races and a motorsport TV Presenter.
Murph is no stranger to reaching 300km/h on the track, but the Kiwi V8 Supercar legend preaches safe speeds and smart decisions when it comes to driving on the road. Murph has been tirelessly advocating for widespread safety improvements in driver training, vehicles and road systems for some time. He worked alongside the Motor Trade Association to create an in-school road safety programme "Murph in Schools", which started in 2010. In 2019, he worked alongside Holden New Zealand to develop a new road safety programme designed for young drivers.
With over 400 V8 Supercar race starts, multiple Bathurst 1000 wins and appointments with some of the highest profile race teams in Australasia, Greg is rightfully considered one of the greats by fellow competitors and fans alike.
