Browse biogs A-Z
Robbie Kerr was born on 26th September, 1979 in High Wycombe, England. In 2005 Kerr was selected as a Great Britain representative in the inaugural season of A1 Grand Prix. Apart from racing, he loves golf, snow skiing and squash.

Robbie Kerr has worked his way up the motorsport ranks. From 1991 to 1996 he was into Karting and he won over 120 races.

Over the next few years of his career Kerr excelled at Karting and with cars. He won the British Open Championship Senior TKM, the Formula First Championship, the Formula Renault Star Cup, he also came 5th in the Formula Palmer Audi Championship, and 3rd in the European Formula Palmer Audi Championship.

In 2001 he entered the British Formula 3 Championship (Scholarship Class) and won at the first time of asking, winning 11 races to confirm his title. Next season, he took part in the proper British Formula 3 Championship and he won that as well - this time recording 9 wins.

In 2003 and 2004 Kerr grew disillusioned with lack of sponsorship and didn’t enter any big competitions but did quite a lot of testing and development with car companies.

Then, in 2005, he was chosen for the Great Britain A1GP team along with Alex Lloyd. GB team chief John Surtees said at the start of the season, "He's had to knock the rusty edges off his driving."

Confirmation that Kerr had knocked the rust off, came with the second meeting of the A1 series, when Kerr showed his character when he came off the track in the first 10 seconds in the sprint race, but in the feature race he started at the back and finished 2nd.
