This will be the first of our series of interviews with interesting and notable people in the world of Rally.
Robbie Durant has some serious experience as a co-driver. While it’s probably not a full list, this site shows 150 events entered and nine overall wins in places like Europe, South America, China, the USA and Canada. On this side of the Atlantic he mainly co-drives for Travis Pastrana.
To watch this talk live, or at a later time, go to the KWRC YouTube Channel. If you are watching live you can post questions that we will try to pass along to Robbie.
Robbie Durant was born in August of 1981. He has plenty of co-driving experience under his belt after being hooked to rallying with his under-powered FWD rally car in 2000. His rally experience includes WRC, IRC, Chinese Rally Championship, Rally America and many regional rallies in Europe. He is the two time British Jr. Rally Champion and the 2WD IRC champion in 2012. Not only can he read and call pace notes, he can wrench as well. Robbie worked for the Redbull Formula 1 Team as a pit crew in 2014 and 2015 alongside his time rallying. Traveling and motorsports are part of his life.
Durant calls himself a Subaru fanatic. He grew up only an hour away from Prodrive in the UK and his childhood memories of Colin McRae and Richard Burns driving blue rally cars as fast as they would go keep him coming back to Subaru. He currently owns a WRX STI race car and a Legacy wagon as his daily driver.
