Robert James Wilson was born in 1979, and is from Taynuilt near Oban on the North West coast of Scotland.
When not racing motorcycles, Robert works as an architect within a small but very busy, local design practice.
Robert started his road racing career at Oliverís Mount and has already enjoyed success around the woodland circuit, finishing 8th in the 2010 International Gold Cup. Robert made an encouraging Ulster Grand Prix debut last year finishing inside the top 20 and lapping at just under 120mph.
After mounting success, Robert was one of only a small handful of promising young riders invited to take part in the 2011 Isle of Man TT. Robert, together with four others were assisted in visiting the Isle of Man 37.7 mile mountain circuit for pre TT familiarisation, assisted with funds from the Mike Hailwood Foundation.
The five rookie solo competitors came in for the trip to complete laps of the course with TT Rider Liaison Officers Johnny Barton and Richard ĎMilkyí Quayle.
Robertís extensive preparations for the 2011 TT included †3 gruelling daily gym workouts, 5 days a week.
Robert competed in 2011 for the Stoddarts of Oban team in all races on Kawasaki 600cc bike. He was also given the opportunity to ride for Sondel Racing on their 1000cc Kawasaki ZX10.
Robertís results were impressive, notching up 3 finishes during race week, with 23rd and 18th places in the two supersport races, and 35th place in the Senior TT. He also managed to lap the circuit at 120.988mph on his debut during the Senior TT.
