90 Seconds with FIA WTCC World Champion Rob Huff

What would you be if not a racing driver?

 

Not sure I can answer that… definitely involved in motorsport somewhere!

 

Do you have any pre-race superstitions?

 

No I don’t - people do like left glove before right glove but the only thing I do is make sure I get in the right side of the car where the steering wheel is!

What is your favourite racing circuit?

Maccau, 8 times winner…

 

Who do you admire the most?

My Dad!  He’s an inspiration to me, he’s hardworking, he’s a grafter, we knew nothing about motorsport whatsoever and somehow his son has made a 15 year career out of it so, without my Dad I’d be nowhere.

Favourite food?

 

Curry!  And Mum’s roast beef, but can depend on the weather!

 

Which other series would you like to race in?

 

V8 Supercars in Australia - proper cars, proper championship, proper racing!

What road car do you drive?

 

Nissan GTR

 

Most memorable racing moment?

 

Winning the World Championship in Maccau in 2012 – I crashed in the first race, it was all a little bit on the edge should we say, I had to finish 6th in the second race and the for the first half of it race I was in P10, so I had a bit of a word with myself, finished P2 and won the Championship - it was a life changing moment.

Do you have any tattoo's, if so what and where (be honest!)?

 

None!  I thought about it when I won the World Championship, I think it will be original in the future ‘not’ to have any… a blank canvas thing!

My racing career stretches back to 1992 when I first began Karting. I have come a long way since then, ultimately winning the 2012 FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) title with the factory Chevrolet team and notching up countless race wins, podium finishes and pole positions along the way.
