Yeah, I know in the top half of Ireland, they're maaad about the rallying and the bottom half, circuit racing. I understand where you're coming from ajp but just because most F1 drivers have done karting, that doesn't mean someone who hasn't can't get there. Look at Hill and Irvine, they never done professional karting, just like the position I'm in now, they decided to jump into car racing straight away without any previous serious karting experience. True, Hill had the benefit of having the name of his father, Graham but that doesn't necessarily mean it was a walk in the park for Hill and I'm sure it was quite tough for Irvine as well so just because theres a ton of people who did it one way, it doesn't mean that another way can't work. At the end of the day, what I want to know is and while there may be chance that I won't get there, I want to be in the comfort of knowing that I tried and that I REALLY tried my hardest to get there but just fate didn't have it in for me.
I've pretty much decided that it won't be possible for me start this year so while aiming to compete next year, I will focus on getting my brother in FBMW, school and personally focusing on how I can make a stellar proposal for next year. Theres a karting event thats going to be held in a couple weeks time where first prize is a Rotax RM1 kart, 2nd Rotax Max Senior Kart (CRG Road Rebel Chassis + ROTAX FR125 Engine) and 3rd is just the ROTAX FR125 Engine. Unfortunately, due to exams, I wasn't able to compete in the last few rounds and the final is in a couple weeks but I'll be contacting the head of the track at Ghibli and ask him if I could possibly be put down as a reserve if a driver doesn't show up and if I can win the RM1, I'll sell it to put it towards getting money for FBMW.
