About Robert Barrable
Robert started his motorsport car in his native Ireland in circuit racing – firstly in karts, before turning to single-seaters in Formula Ford and then saloon car racing with a season in the Ford Fiesta Trophy. He switched to rallying in 2010, and quickly began to follow in the footsteps of his father Michael by becoming a force to be reckoned with. Only a year after entering his first rally, Robert was crowned British and Irish Citroën C2 R2 champion.
Robert’s highlight of 2010 was being awarded the Billy Coleman Award – the most prestigious award bestowed upon young up-and-coming Irish rally drivers. Robert stepped up to S2000 machinery for 2011, contesting selected Irish, British and international events in an ex-works Skoda Fabia S2000. And in 2012 he contested selected rounds of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in a Skoda Ireland-backed Fabia S2000, finishing sixth on the high-speed Circuit of Ireland Rally. Robert made his FIA World Rally Championship debut in 2013 with the Tunnocks World Rally Team.
Roberts first outing pulled in a fantastic outing at the last rounds of the 2014 championship with 7th place finish in his first race and a race victory.in the second at Donington Park.
