I work hard to prepare for racing. I make sure that I maintain peak levels of fitness both on my own and with my personal trainer. I study footage of different race circuits, familiarising myself with the driving styles of my competition which helps me on race day. I also review videos of my own driving to assess where I can make improvements or see where I have got it right.
I am extremely competitive and very much a perfectionist when it comes to my own performance! I am dyslexic and have had to adjust my style of learning to cope analytically. I believe dealing with dyslexia in my younger years and being made to feel below standard played a massive part in my utter determination to succeed in motorsport.
Rob got the racing bug after sampling indoor karting back in 2011, and since then has steadily progressed through the junior motorsport ranks, with notable achievements including 2013 Anglia Indoor Karting champion, 2014 YoungStarz at Red Lodge Karting champion, 2015 Sodi World Series British champion and 2016 Shenington Kart Club Junior X30 champion. In 2017, he won three rounds of the prestigious MSA Super One British Championship Junior TKM class (including on his debut), placing fifth in the final standings and taking the rookie crown.
2018 was the year Rob made the transition from karting to cars, and he immediately impressed on his debut with two races at the end of the F1000 season (balancing this with his Super One kart commitments, and at 16 years of age still not having a road car licence!) P4 on his debut and a podium in the next round showed that Rob's natural speed and race craft had transferred over from the kart, and two subsequent seasons in F1000 saw him take four wins, driver of the day awards, and numerous fastest laps in the series. In 2021 Rob will be going all out for more race wins and will be hopeful of a shot at the overall series title.
