Hi, my name is Rafał Nawrocki, I was born on the 3rd of October 2004. My dream is to achieve great things in karting and further on motorsports. I know I can achieve what I'm soo hardly wishing but it's not easy because of one major thing - money.
I always liked cars. First, it was collecting and playing with Hotwheels. Then at around the age of 6, I watched the first Transformers movie. It made cars look soo much cooler to me! I immediately fantasized about getting a Bumblebee-like Camaro and enjoying it as much as I could! From on then, it wasn't just about looking or having cars, it was about enjoying, and actually using them. Every trip with my mum in the car was exciting and interesting.
Sometime later for around my 8th birthday, I was presented with an option: i could get a toy steering that would attach to a car window, letting me play pretend as I was "driving" the car, and the second option was a dog from the animal shelter. Well, if I had chosen the steering wheel maybe my "career" would've started way earlier, and most probably I wouldn't be writing this now, but in the end, I think that it was a superior choice to choose my beloved dog because it massively influenced my behavior, personality, and overall shaped me as a better human being.
I started karting around the age of 12 in rental karting, joined a club, and somehow it got to this point in time. Now, I'm trying to get on a higher level, most probably 2 stroke rotax-im age restricted to senior. Am i going to succed? Within the first year, or even two most probably not.
My time in karting is limited, and soo are my options to achieve great things. The budget that ive set is still half of what would be the perfect ammount with perfect equipment (or even more, ive calculated that a season in rotax including purchase of new equipment costs over 10 thousand euro, and such was my first goal of this crowdfunding campaign, but ive understood that im not very likely to gather even enough for a new helmet,let alone get loads of cash). The set budget should help me ease off some of the expenses, although im still going to have to cover most of the costs myself, im looking for a job for myself, soo this campaign is deffinitly not going to fund 100% of it, but its going to help with it. Will i win every race on my first year? Of course not, but ive set the goal for myself, and im pretty sure that its my only chance to do something in the sport.
Im working hard, but motorsport is a dad-kid sport, and my dad died before i was born, which makes things really difficult, especially when im struggling with funding. My mom is trying to help me as much as she can, but her teachers sallary is not sufficient in the slightest to fund me a season in high-profile karting.
Even if i wont be able to gather any money from this campaign, im gonna try my hardest to succed, and achieve what ive set to achieve, even though its gonna be hard, im going to be working hard every day to get what im soo deeply wishing for.
