Name: Robert Holden
Date of Birth:
Nationality: New Zealander

Legendary kiwi racer Robert Holden was a winner of numerous singles, twins, superbike and endurance events the world over during his 19 year racing career. Dominant in domestic racing in New Zealand, his international wins included victories on various capacity machines at hard-man races like the North-West 200 and Isle-of-Man TT (where he tragically died on a Ducati 916 in 1996 during pre-race practice)

Teamed up with Steve Manley, Holden competed in the World Endurance Championship in 1994 riding a ZXR750R with the team finishing 6th overall after a 2nd place in the Bol DOr 24-Hour and 3rd at the Spa 24-Hour event. The gap between privateer and factory teams was closer that year due to the championship being run under Superbike regulations rather than F1.

In 1995 the pair finished 4th at the Le Mans 24-Hour Endurance event on a Kawasaki ZXR and at the Assen 6-Hours race he competed with Andrew Stroud finishing 5th.
