Sparking my motorsport dream
Not quite
Unfortunately this project was not successful.

I am aiming to raise enough money to buy the basic things needed to go karting outdoors, and ultimately, get a seat in motorsport.

My motorsport dream

About me

Hello! My name is Ben. I am 13 years old, and the reason I have decided to create a crowdfunding page is because I have been passionate about karting, motorsport, and cars in general from a young age. My dream is to get a seat in formula one, or any other motorsport. I am always keeping up to date with many series of motorsport, such as Formula 1, W Series, Nascar and Formula Ford.

 Indoor karting

I may have only started karting around two years ago, but that did not stop me from pushing on at my local track. By the end of 2019, I had managed to work my way up from being constantly lapped by the fastest people there to racing with them. Considering that I only started karting in mid-March, I was more than happy with my result. Overall, I got the third fastest lap in 2019. I kept racing at my local track for as long as I could before coronavirus, and started working to get faster and faster laps. After the lockdown of 2020, I continued to work my way up the leader board once again, and this time, by end of the year, I had the fastest lap of 2020.

Outdoor karting

Lockdown has given me a chance to think properly about karting. Ever since I got the lap that gave me third fastest, I have been looking into what series I can enter and what regulations I would need to meet to get into them. I would need a kart, and am looking to raise funds for this. My goal is to achieve meeting the target of £5,000 in the next 6 months to make this possible. I am willing to give back if people will help me on my dream journey. If you can think of a way that I could help you out, please let me know. My primary idea would be to put the names of everyone that helped me on my racing suit so that people will know who have supported me.

I am also looking into sponsorships. If you are interested in sponsoring me, this would be a great help.
