The Driving Force
Within a few short years, Rob Whyte has become one of the biggest names in drifting, not only in Australia but also internationally.

It began at the go-kart track, as it did for many top drivers. However it was a slightly different path for Rob. This was the first introduction to his ability to control over-steer.
Growing up loving the wet weather race days and boy did he shine! Particularly showing the importance of controlled sliding! With the need for adrenaline, in 2007 Rob put his talent behind a slightly bigger wheel and the “drift” bug bit! Starting out at local drift practice nights in a completely stock road registered car, Rob honed his skills until taking the big step from his home turf to the national stage in 2011.
Rob and his crew worked extremely hard over the year to build a competitive car and most importantly a solid team. After a successful national debut, Rob raised the bar once again, taking out the 2012 Australian Drifting Championship, he then went on to back it up the following season being crowned once again the Australian Champion!
Since then Rob’s talent has seen him behind the wheel on a world stage, joining the sports pinnacle, Formula Drift. Not to mention touring with the famous Ken Block for Monster Energy!
Rob’s skill and drive has his sights set on building his driving career and the pathway to success has only just begun!
