I think Ashish has said that, as under (ready reference):

....You need to get the basics right and have to start from the lower levels of motor-racing. Get familiar with Go-Karting and try to participate in some of the national level championships. If you are able to impress some gods out there, you might be picked up by them to race for their teams. 

..... It is not just about speed at all. It is about fitness, concentration, reflexes, accuracy, braking points, turning points, hitting the kerb right and more importantly, knowing your machine.

..... Start with Go-Karting, race at national level championships, graduate to FISSME which will have you drive a single seater race car with Maruti 800 engine......

Hi everyone,

I really did not think that such an interest would be attracted towards this thread. I would like to thank everyone in here for showering good words for me I have tried to explain as explicitly and as simply as I could  about the basics of motorsports, hope people are finding it helpful. As mentioned by Pankaj, please refer the previous posts.

As for my racing experiences, it was fun, is all I can say!!! I raced the FISSMEs and tested the LGBs. It will get very technical if I start explaining it, so what I would do instead is do an article around it sometime and post it somewhere.. perhaps in the forum itself.

Ashish,

Yes, an artical in the forum will be beneficial. 

Besides, I would request here if you could also post an article on Auto Expo you just attended.  I understand it would be quite time consuming with so many cars out there (even if you summarised it), but it I feel it would really be worthwhile & first hand review of CarWale (you yourself attended it).

Thanks.

Gaurav, it's all mentioned in detail by Ashish at post #3 (page #1). Please go through it. If you have anything to ask/discuss beyond what is mentioned therein, you can post your query here - it will lead to further discussions in the benefit of all.  Thanks.

William, if you are located in India, as explained earlier by Ashish, you need to start with Go-Karting & then participate at National Level Championships.  Thereafter, if you get into some team, you will be sponsored/funded, and could proceed to FISSME then Formula LGB or Hyundai & to Formula Rolon, the top level in India. Formula Ford or BMW would follow at international level before you could join Formula 1.

Yes, I had guessed that you were not located in India, and that is why I mentioned that "If you are located in India..." Anyway

Regarding the system in UK, I'm sorry I'm not aware of it.  Hope someone else is able to help you here - probably Ashish may (let's see).

Ashish,

Thank you so much for posting "Auto Expo", covering so many cars/launches.  Great information - I'm sure it will be very helpful to all the members/users & visitors of the site.

Thanks once again.

hii,
      i am animesh dayal. i am 16yrs. old and am studying in class 11th at the moment in st. franci's college, lucknow. i am crazy about speed but not mad- i mean i know my and my vehcile's limits and i do not cross them, i have been the fastest rider amongst all my friends and in my locallity(that's the highest level at which i can compare myself with others at the moment) and want to take up racing as proffession wether car racing or bike racing- though i prefer bikes. actually i have'nt ever driven a car as yet but i know i'll love them as i love speed. i have obviouslly got a bicycle and a 60cc vehcile. but the main problem is that racing is too expensive. i want to know what can i do to realize my dream at this age with the least amount of investments.

Animesh, nothing to discourage you, but it is a fact that it is not an easy thing to accomplish.  There is plenty of competition at all levels & is quite expensive too.  Read through the details provided earlier by Ashish Jha in this thread itself  (page#1) by clicking the link: http://www.carwale.com/forums/ViewThread-3138-p1.html
