About Us

Mountain Road Racing is a Tarmac Rally Motorsport Team created for and dedicated to assisting our Australian Military Veterans into the uplifting Pursuit-of-Excellence environment of Tarmac Rally competition, at the Australian national level. 

Originally formatted in 2006 by Robert Kilsby, an Australian Special Air Service (SAS) Vietnam War Veteran.  In 2003 Robert found that Tarmac Rally competition was to become his key physical and psychological recovery factor with many major Tarmac Rally competitions including 6 ‘Targa Tasmania’s over the following 15 plus years.  He has seen this proven pathway work, indeed, he says it reversed his 'downward spiral'.

Our Team aims to bring benefits to our recovering Veterans, many of whom are struggling further with transition to mainstream civilian family and vocational life, and often challenged by serious physical and mental issues.  In particular we are focused on our ‘younger Veterans’ across all 3 Services, men and women, abled and disabled, from the last, longest continual warfare phase beginning over 23 years ago.
