How can I become a Pro Race Car Driver
Its always been my dream to become a race car driver, now that Im at the point in my life where this type of thing is now available for me to do. Does anywhere know like where I can start, like a school or just to get my name out there...I wanna do the touring class racing series, or something like that. Any pointers or anything would really help.

I know there was a school you could go to that would let you learn on an F1 team, first fixing and building the cars, then learning to drive them...

I forget the name


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

To deny the simple pleasures in life is to desire death in the most horrifing way.

step one: race go karts from the age of 2
step two: win all your races againsed kids untill your 19
step three: become pro


you wont be able to do it unless you've been racing your whole life...

these kids that turn pro have grown up racing.
