Current season plans are to compete in the Tennesee Tarmac Express Rally in September, as well as the Lake Superior ProRally. Finally, we would like to compete in the Rally of the Tall Pines in Bancroft, Ontario.

I became involved with rallying by crewing for my brother, Nick Robinson (also a THR driver), during college. After finishing college, I secured a job at Honda Research Americas.

Currently my co-driver, Jim Newton, and I are running a 1997 Honda Civic 3-door which competes in the G2 class. The car was prepared in house (THR) and all engine work/modification has been effected by Jim Newton and myself. Currently we have a B18 GSR motor with no modifications.

Our sponsors include Honda Motor Company, Benderís Race Cars, Hella Inc., Red Line Oil Inc., Transportation Research Center, Suquehanna Motorsports, Snap-On Tools, Jackson Racing and AEM.

I graduated from Grove City College in Pennsylvania in May of 2000 and am currently employed by Honda Research Americas, Inc. as an engine device test engineer. I am 22 years old and not married. My hobbies include automotive restoration/engine building, mountiain/road biking and camping.
