Fun Fact

Yes, his last name really is ‘Bacon’. He grew up on two wheels, honing his skills on a mixture of motocross bikes and mini motos before getting his motorcycle license at the age of 16. Robert’s first (unofficial) car driving lesson came courtesy of his father at the age of 11, from there he took to go-karting. But, ironically, he wouldn’t get a driver’s license until the tender age of 28.
