If you want to know what it takes to become a race car driver in a nutshell, watch this video. It honestly has me wishing I had started open-wheel racing at a young age, because this guys life looks fantastic. Hotels, private flights, track time, and parties are just a few of the many perks enjoyed by race car drivers around the world, and if I had the chance to participate in any of these activities, I would be one happy camper. Someday, perhaps I will; but until then, I will have to live vicariously through Youtube and other various media outlets. Enjoy.
