About Rob Peché

It started with childhood toy car races across the carpet on a Sunday afternoon, to the sounds of Formula 1 of course. Half-Italian, Rob was destined to do what no Italians are actually silly enough to do – drive something Italian! With a slight bias towards Alfa Romeo, Rob loves any car with a soul and any form of racing. His pride and joy is a 1969 Alfa Romeo GT Junior 1300 stepnose. After starting out in Clubmans karting in 2017, he now competes in DD2 Masters karting in a CRG.
