When I was a small boy, I had many different posters of different high performance cars; pictures of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, Audis, BMWs, Mercedes Benzes, Muscle Cars, and many more. I was a serious car kid, but I didn’t know very much about them. I wanted to learn so much more about cars, but I didn’t know where to start in the first place; so my love of cars began to decline until I was older.
My love for cars sparked up again when I was close to getting my license; we had moved to a newer town when I was almost 16. Where we moved, I began seeing so many new and awesome cars, and that rekindled my interest in them. I went to the internet and began to find websites of people who love cars just as much as I do; and I began to learn more and more about them. I learned how to tell the noise of a V8 compared to a V12, what g-forces do to a car’s performance, how the engine worked, etc. That was when I found out about Motorsport.
I began digging into Motorsport and found that cars that entered into Motorsport became more and more…insane, for use of a better word. I found out about my now favorite sport, GT3 racing, incorporated so many of my favorite cars, as listed above. They got a complete overhaul in terms of appearance and performance; the interiors were stripped out, the engine was beefed up, the body became more aerodynamic and more aggressive looking. It sparked my dream; to one day be a GT3 race car driver. I did research on how to become one, but my dreams were shattered at the fact of the cost it takes.
My passion for motorsport hasn’t changed; it just became a dream that will always be out of reach for me.
