How many black people do you see at race meeting?
« on: March 21, 2017, 06:44:42 PM »
I was just wondering because only I realise I am probably the only black driver at buckmore junior championships and it's kind of affecting me. My friends and family look at me weird when I say "When I'm 13, I'm going to try convince my dad to help me get an ARKS licence so I can race in junior rotax" or "When I'm older I want to be a race car driver" or "Every month me and my dad go to buckmore".

Thanks...
It's depressing. :/
As much as I want to believe I can be an race car driver in open wheel racing I know deep inside it's almost impossible because my family don't have the money unless Ron Dennis comes and asks "Do you want to join the Mclaren Young Driver Program?".

Might not be but still you can race, my family doesn't have a lot of money, but that isn't stoping me, I still want to go race cars, and I might start to but don't give up if you don't make it always have a backup plan
Your just tearing shit up if you don't test

You should do Junior Rotax at Buckmore!

I'm racing Junior Rotax there at the moment and my god, Buckmore is just epic in those things :P
