Motorsport is powerful, immensely so.
It is compelling, addictive and always leaves you wanting more.
It gives you that high, that rush, that adrenaline.
Then, when it is all over, it leaves you gasping for another installment.
Imagine how the drivers must feel.
The risks involved are sensational, breathtaking. Utterly incredible. The laws of science are constantly pushed, boundaries are tested and humans are pushed to the edge.
The thing is, I couldn’t imagine life without motorsport, much like there’d be no life without water. I pose motorsport as one of the elements, the fifth necessity to thousands and thousands of people.
I couldn’t imagine life without motorsport because I have found some of my closest friends through it, people that I will now stay in contact with for the rest of my life. The people I now know are some of the nicest, friendliest people. End of.
I couldn’t imagine life without motorsport as it is my way of earning a living, and is a means of an income to thousands of people from the drivers, to the sponsors to the hospitality hosts. Motorsport has, in effect, funded my lifestyle.
I couldn’t imagine life without motorsport as it has created some of my fondest memories. Being at the race track, the noise of the engines rattling through you, watching the skill involved. The dedication, the commitment, the overtaking. It’s bloody amazing.
I couldn’t image life without motorsport because it has allowed me to travel to some spectacular locations and experience some phenomenal countries. Without motorsport, I probably wouldn’t have visited them. Simple.
In short, motorsport has the magic of uniting people of all nationalities, genders, sexualities, and backgrounds.
It creates families, with one massive thing in common; racing.
For some, it’s a lifeline a bouée de sauvetage. Motorsport is there when you need it the most, allowing you to crack a smile despite all of the darkness in the world.
Sure, the sport isn’t perfect, but we love it. That is why we live and breathe it.
It is more than just a sport to us fans, it is a drug, a way of life.
