    Graham is steeped in motorsport and predominantly rallying history. His father Nigel Raeburn was a multiple MN Road Rally winning navigator and won the 1970 RAC British Rally Championship.

    Graham has also been a member of Knutsford & District Motor Club since birth. His competition history is mainly as a navigator, having done nearly 200 rallies, historic, road, endurance and stage – highlights include winning the 2004 ANWCC Road Rally Championship with Owen Turner and a total of 20 overall wins.

    Graham's most recent event was 22/23 February 2020 – Hexham Historic Rally where he finished 1st overall with Steve Head. He has participated in many HRCR regularity rallies as well as Rally of the Tests and occasional overseas events.

    He is also an active marshal and event organiser including Clerk of the Course on the Plains Rally from 2007 to 2014 and Knutsford Targa Rally since 2017 – winning numerous Rally of the Year awards during this time.

    Professionally he has spent the last 15 years working for Shell and conducted and participated in many webinars. One focus area for him was sales performance coaching and providing insights into pricing and price optimization.

    He has taught rally navigation at HRCR training days and in his role as CLO on Tour of Cheshire and Three Castles has run training sessions and offered encouragement and support to rally newcomers.

    Across both motorsport and work, he has always got satisfaction from helping and supporting others and doing his best to ensure they are enjoying themselves along the way. Through Rally Navigation Training Services he is bringing the opportunities to learn and gain insights to encourage enjoyment and success as a rally navigator.
