Interview | Rob Warner: ‘Look At The Time!’

Chipps quizzes Rob Warner, on lucky breaks, World Cup racing and how commentating saved him from himself. Words & Photography Chipps CAUTION, CONTAINS ALL OF THE SWEARS.

STOP NOW IF YOU’RE EASILY OFFENDED. Rob Warner is a dick. He’s rude, crude, breaks stuff for fun, has no respect for women, authority or, well anybody really and he acts like he owns the place, wherever it...

    The pdf magazine seems to have cut that interview off, missing page ?

    Sounds like he’s on a mission in life and loving it. Does he need a co-host?

    Dare I say, one of the best STW articles I’ve read, pure and honest passion from Warner. Used to love watching him race and only latterly got into watching WC DH, which he was a huge part of.

    Really good article. I knew almost nothing about him before reading it, so great to learn what his background was and his thinking on commentating etc..

    Likewise the Ratboy interview months back was excellent for pretty much the same reasons. ( not commentating, obvs)
