Rob Austin is a hugely popular, race wining competitor, in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), managing a 2-car team and driving competitively, since joining the championship in 2011.
Rob’s BTCC career on track includes multiple podiums and two race wins, with both wins achieved at the Rockingham circuit, beating manufacturer backed and big budget teams. Prior to competing in the BTCC Rob achieved wins in other formulas including Ginettas and British Formula Three.
Away from the track Rob has successfully established the race team itself incorporating a successful engineering business from scratch, most notably building replica 1976 Formula One cars for the recent Ron Howard movie; Rush, which depicts the classic 1976 Formula One season, in which Niki Lauder sustained horrific injuries in an accident at the German grand prix, yet still returned to race only a few months later at the Italian grand prix. Rob also turned his hand to acting for the same film, playing Brett Lunger and driving an original 1976 Surtees Formula One car.
Rob has been likened to the Formula One world champion of 1976 James Hunt, through his charismatic personality, fan and media appeal and 1970’s throwback style.
Rob is the ideal choice to entertain, inspire and motivate your events’ audience, blending his natural personality, technical and commercial experiences and showing your audience that with the right application and determination, an underdog can not only compete but be competitive, and do it with style!
