Within a few short years, Rob Whyte has become one of the biggest names in the Australian drifting community.Starting out in a road registered and completely standard Nissan 350Z, Rob began to hone his skills at the local racetrack attending drift practice nights. It was actually many years prior that Rob began to understand the fine art of car control. It began at the go kart track,where many top drivers have started their careers. This became his first introduction to the ability to control oversteer. This was of particular importance at wet track days, with Rob being a self funded driver, he could only afford wet weather tyres for the front! So with slicks on the back, controlled sliding became a necessity of racing!
Rob and his team have worked together over the years to build an extremely competitive vehicle and a formidable team. With the backing of Achilles Radial, the 350z has now been highly modified to the tune of 500HP thanks to the supercharged Nismo race engine that is run on 108 octane E85 race fuel. After a successful 2011 season, Rob has again raised the bar by taking out the Australian Drifting Championship for 2012 against the very best in Australia. He then went on to back it up and was crowned Australian Champion once again the following season. Rob has now set his sights on building his international drifting career.
