A Formula Ford club racer from 1969 to 1972, Robarts drove an F3 GRD in 1973, sharing the Lombard North Central championship with Tony Brise.

Richard bought the second seat in the Brabham team for 1974, but when his backing fell through, he lost his place to the well-funded Rikki von Opel.

A hoped-for second chance with Williams in Sweden later that year failed to materialise when Tom Belso took over the car at the last minute, which left Robarts pretty much in the wilderness until he found the necessary sponsorship to go racing in Formula 2 in 1976 with a year-old March. He found the level of competition a bit too hot, but enjoyed some success with occasional outings in the Shellsport G8 series.
