About Jaylyn Robotham
In a sport that desperately needs personality injected into it, 17 year old school boy Jaylyn Robotham may be the antidote.
One of three young teens to be identified and signed to Push Management’s inaugural Junior Development Program, Robotham left club level racing in 2018 to enter the popular Toyota 86 Racing Series.
A junior BMX champion, Robotham’s career in motorsport began as a relatively unknown competitor. In fact, one may be forgiven for mistaking Robotham as an inspiring artist or musician – such is his love for the arts.
But in 2017, in his own laconic way, Jaylyn Robotham popped out of relative obscurity to national prominence when he won the popular ‘Aussie Driver Search’ out of thousands of hopefuls. A cool $20,000 later and Jaylyn found himself on the Australian motorsport map.
In 2018 Jay competed in the 2018 Toyota 86 Racing Series, a support category to the Supercars Championship and managed to finish 5th overall – despite missing Bathurst due to age dispensation.
2019 saw a busy year for the young teen as he competed in the Toyota 86 Racing Series for a second year in a row, finishing sixth overall; as well as made his debut in the TA2 Asia Series, where he finished second in the Championship.
The rising star is set to race over the summer season in the Toyota 86 GAZOO Racing Series in New Zealand, where he is a top contender.
