During a brief time with Formula One's Minardi as their test driver, he also began racing in sports cars, winning the 2003 FIA GT Championship with Thomas Biagi in a BMS Scuderia Italia Ferrari,[2] and finishing as runner-up in 2004. In 2006, he won the GT2 class with Jaime Melo.

Bobbi began racing karts in 1995 and progressed to Formula Renault in 1998, where he finished on the podium several times. He tested a Formula One car for Minardi in 2000, and became their official test driver the following year. Also that year, he competed in the Spanish Formula Nissan Championship, in which he won at Valencia. He won six races in 2002, finishing as runner-up in the championship standings.

Bobbi continued to work with Minardi until mid-2003, including a Grand Prix weekend test session at the 2003 San Marino Grand Prix. Giovanni Minardi was his manager at the time.[2]

He currently competes full-time in the Rolex Sports Car Series for Cheever Racing.
