My name is Jason Grunsell and I am a passionate supercar adventurer writer. I have established “First Rides” as my personal brand, the goal is to take supercars out onto the roads where they belong and can perform!  Meeting like minded people and giving them the opportunity to interact with supercars, while on my personal journey to show off the scenic wonders of the world’s most majestic roads and sights is also a big part of my branding concept.

Supercars have always been a passion, however it was not until 2009 that I began pursueing my passion in earnest. Over the last 8 years I have created a supercar themed TV show called “First Rides”, and I am currently seeking a studio or network deal to have it produced. In 2013 I won Shell Canada’s Ultimate Enthusiast contest and my prize was to visit and tour the Ferrari factory and experience the thrill of driving a Ferrari 458 around Ferrari’s own “Fiorano” test track. Since then I have managed to drive a host of supercars here in Canada and in Los Angeles, California. My last major event was to test drive a Ferrari 488 spider. I took this gorgeous machine to visit its aviation counterpart, the  SR-71 Blackbird at the Blackbird Airpark in Palmdale California. Just a few weeks ago I had the privilege of meeting and interviewing Lamborghini’s legendary Chief Test Driver, Valentino Balboni.
