Never tell Rod Barrett he can’t do it! He stated at his 40th birthday gathering, that if he had to do in his next 20 years, what he had already done in his first 20, then he may never do it – but he’ll try! Such is the extent of what he has crammed into his life. From the humble beginnings in a housing commission home in Hobart, to the Senior Executive ranks with corporate high flyers Coca-Cola & Fosters, what really motivated him from a very early age was the desire to race cars. That motivation turned into an absolute passionate drive to succeed in his chosen sport – something that many people never really understood, and probably to this day, never will. Beginning cautiously, albeit successfully, in 1979, his desire to be the best never waned, and after 13 years in the sport that captured wins, a Tasmanian Championship, British Championship placing’s, a drive with Peter Brock, and a reputation in England as a hard charger, his dream was abruptly cut short at Brands Hatch in 1991 after an horrific crash. From the absolute highs of motor-racing, fatherhood, world travel, corporate life, entertainment, and sport, to the other side of life, he has endured divorces and broken partnerships, career ruining accidents, estranged family relationships, separation from his son, and severe depression. Through all this, nothing has ever taken away Rod Barrett’s Will to Win.
