Welcome to my blogthing!
I’m still not sure why I’m doing this or if I’ll think of enough to put in here to make it worth reading – we shall see. Maybe I’ve been too influenced by some other blogs and thought “hey, I can do that”. Maybe without so much of the humour but I’ll give it a shot. Truth is I have no idea how this will turn out. A decade in newsgroups should hopefully help.
So a little about me:
I’m 28 years old, a menial office worker in a small town in Dorset, a county in southern England. I work in accounts and am about to embark on the 3rd year of a three year part-time accountancy course, so blog posts could be intermittant especially near exam time.
I’ve been watching F1 since I was a small child. Earliest motorsport memory is the Marlboro McLarens dominating the racing and my constant disappointment that Mansell couldn’t always keep up. Later, in the mid-90s, that changed to Hill and the awful reliability of his Williams when he was in the #0 car.
Since 1998 I’ve been reading Autosport magazine and can therefore be classified as a motorsport nerd. A little later, 2000 I think, I got access to Eurosport and watched my first CART races – and my first oval races. Blown away, been a fan of US open-wheel ever since but haven’t always been able to watch due to moving around and not being able to afford the satellite/cable setup.
Then in 2007 I discovered the means to watch not only Champ Car (as it had become) and IRL (despite my opposition to it until that point), but a whole lot of other stuff. BTCC. DTM. Sportscars.
That’s when the obsession took over.
That’s when I started watching Too Much Racing.
For the record I am a fan of racing more than any particular team or driver.
