It maybe a retarded justification but quite a few racing drivers were brought up from the mountain roads because they weren't rich and they didn't have friends or relatives in the business. However their dedication to become a professional racing driver and to practise regularly has proven that you don't have to be from a rich family to become a good racing driver.
For example Keiichi Tsuchiya
"Oh, my God! I'm in a fast car and I have no control over my right foot! But that's ok, as there are no track facilities next door, and I'm unable to control myself to get all the way to the track. And I'm so self centered that I have to do it even though I know it's wrong and dangerous, as it's 'fun' and thus it's going to happen whether anyone else likes it or not!"
Somehow I don't think that stereotype attitude was on his mind.
I just believe that better and cheaper facilities for performance driving will encourage more people to take it off the street. Just like skateboard parks reducing the number of skaters terrorising the high street!!
I never said I was a street racer-hell my Ford Ka could not keep up with a Vauxhall, i was suggesting why it's still being done so sorry if you had any assumptions.
