lol, this thread makes me feel old, more than 10 years ago I was 15 and one of the youngest fellas around here.
My Racing started to stop somewhere around 2008/09 when I discovered poker and started working with all my heart toward the goal of becoming a good poker player. Have been playing for nearly five years now and still havent had to go to work ever in Estonia
Bought a new desktop PC sometime in 2012 and started to do a slow comeback with iRacing. OH BOY it took a while, but managed to become the Skip Barber Champion of Season 2013/02 in a 4way battle all the way up to the final GP at SPA. Coming out on top in that battle felt so great, reminded me of why I loved LFS so much, the feeling of accomplishment it provided me with !
Since I also have become successful enough with poker to spend some money, I also gave a shot at real life with Rotax Max karting last year. Did 5 Races and mostly last places so far, Estonia has pretty great drivers, The Rotax Max Champ came 2nd at the Grand Finals in New Orleans, so it's tough out there. But I was closing the gap with every race and my equipment wasnt the best last year.
Will be having another expensive shot at it this year with full season and better equipment and team support, will see how goes
