Biography

Rob Whyte Holding Up a Trophy

Rob Whyte’s passion for motorsport and driving excellence has propelled him from victory to victory over the years. His love of drifting and racing began at the go-kart track—as it does for many driving legends. However, Rob’s journey to international acclaim would proceed down a slightly different track than most.

After discovering he had a natural talent for controlling over-steer, Rob became steadily more interested in drifting. He quickly developed a love for wet weather race days, as they gave the opportunity to let his controlled sliding skills really shine through. The drifting bug bit harder in 2007, when Rob satisfied his growing thirst for adrenaline behind a bigger wheel.

Attending local drift practice nights in a standard road registered car, Rob sharpened his talents extensively before taking the big step from his home turf to the national stage in 2011. 

Rob’s career was really off and running after this point. His debut was extremely successful, and he raised the bar even further next year—taking out the 2012 Australian Drifting Championship. Since then, Rob has continued to veer from one triumph to another. He has entered the sports pinnacle of Formula Drift, as well as toured with legends in the profession—including Ken Block for Monster Energy. It’s clear that his journey to drifting superstardom has only just begun.

Rob Whyte is renowned locally and internationally as a drifting champion. He also oversees the much-celebrated Drift Masters Australia event—giving amateurs the chance to test their drifting skills and showcase incredible steering talent.

The stadium trucks that Rob Whyte operates produce 600 horsepower and generate speeds upwards of 205 kilometres per hour. The stadium races Rob takes part of feature ramps that propel these trucks nearly 20 feet off the ground.

Created by drifters for drifters, the Drift Masters Australia event showcases grassroot talent and gives amateur drivers the chance to go professional. It also offers fantastic entertainment for motorsport fans.
