About Robert James Franičević

Robert James Francevic, (born on 18 September 1941 in Auckland, New Zealand) was a racing driver in New Zealand and Australia in the 1970s and 1980s. He won the inaugural Nissan-Cue 500 (later Nissan Mobil 500) street race in Wellington, New Zealand in 1985 driving a Volvo 240 Turbo and was the first person to be inducted into the MotorSport New Zealand Wall of Fame in 1994. In his native New Zealand, he won several New Zealand touring car championships, he travelled to the U.S and raced stock cars, which meant he missed out on a prized Formula One drive in Europe.

He won the 1986 Australian Touring Car Championship, the first non Australian to do so.
