EDIT: if nothing else, you can find out if you're cut out for it and like it. I don't even mean doing many seasons, just start by getting your license, getting signed off and trying a race or two in the E36.
I hear you, but I need to get this build done while I still have time. I can't really wait around. It's going to take an entire year just to build the car. Plus another year or more in regionals. It'll be 2-3 years from now if I can make it.

More of a "builder than a "driver"... if you will.
Nothing wrong with that. You built a nice car and now it's time to build another...
Wow you couldn't be more wrong. Quite the psychoanalysis considering you've never even met me.
I've pumped tens of thousands of dollars into driving. Building a car is great fun and yes I love doing it, but driving is what I really care about.
