    If you want to, you will rarely get in from outside unless you are very young, it is one of the most closed industries out there.

    They will rather take someone with half the potential from within the industry than someone who is willing to learn and start from the bottom. Believe me I have tried hence the bitterness.

    Interesting...

    I'm actually not looking to break into the industry...I enjoy my work/life balance :). Just curious how many around here are involved in motorsports since this is a community based around the sport (kind of).

    If you wanted to get into motorsports one avenue is by volunteering as a flag marshall with your local circuit/track, you'll need to learn some stuff about safety etc and it might not get you into the pits on a regular basis, but its a start.

    Cheers
