Welcome to The Gearbox! I'm Charlie, an aspiring professional race car driver. After graduating from NYU last May, I decided to move to Europe to pursue my ambition.
I'm not new to motorsport (that's me in the picture on top), I won the Skip Barber Eastern Regional Championship way back in 2005, and competed in the Star Mazda Pro Series from 2006-2007. Since then I have been studying the racing business and attempting to figure out how to fund my career. I've got some ideas that I'm excited to try out over the coming year.
My objectives with this blog are to chronicle my adventure and give racing fans some insight on the struggles of becoming a successful racing driver. Once I make the move across the pond I'll aim to update at least once a week, so be sure to check back often for updates, especially as the 2012 season approaches!
