soopey: She's probably running a cheated up Hendricks chassis with a Yates motor that has illegal roller-rockers and a light weight fly-wheel.
grinding_journalist: So, I'm a motorsports photographer, and I named my son Max Power mylastname; I figure this is a perfect setup for him to become a race car driver- my question is, when can you start doing organized racing as a child? Are there amateur kiddie-kart circuits? I only ask because I know people like Vettel and Hamilton were basically bred to be F1 drivers from the get-go, and I honestly have no clue how to do this. I'm planning on building him a tube-frame go-kart, and prior to that all I can think of is having him putter around in a power wheels car.Any ideas?
soopey: Search google? 4-6 years old might be a good time to start them. Be forewarned, it gets expensive quick. Ludicrously expensive. Plaid expensive.
mikaloyd: First you need money. Stacks of 20 dollar bills piled higher than your kid. Then you are ready for motorsports
Sin_City_Superhero: She already has as many NASCAR wins as Danica...
soopey: Sin_City_Superhero: She already has as many NASCAR wins as Danica...I'm quite surprised Danica didn't do better at Sears Point this past weekend. She should be one of the better road course drivers with her Indy Car experience.
FlyingJ: of course this kid's gonna rave up Danica-she's on her uncle's team
grinding_journalist: soopey: Search google? 4-6 years old might be a good time to start them. Be forewarned, it gets expensive quick. Ludicrously expensive. Plaid expensive.Yeah, did that. Apparently there are a few kiddie kart series/circuits not too far from where I live; they'll let him practice at age 4, and competitively race at age 5.mikaloyd: First you need money. Stacks of 20 dollar bills piled higher than your kid. Then you are ready for motorsportsI realize that, but it occurs to me- most of the younger kids I've seen racing are definitely of the small town/lesser means set- is their family just putting everything they have into the kid's racing?
