"There are two groups of people in racing – those who make victories and those who make excuses. Don't be the latter"
So said the guy taking our weekend seminar on racing dynamics. And he's got a very good point. "I was too tired", "We didn't have enough time", and "We didn't have the budget" are all bad excuses for a lack of dedication, poor organisation and a lack of dedication to finding the sponsorship. As he said, we live in one of the ten richest countries in the world. The money is there, we just have to find it and then work out ways of getting it, which may require creativity. The rest is just plain hard graft and good organisation.
I've decided that I don't really sign up to our charter to try and finish in the top 10 universities for Formula Student. I want to win it. I don't care if other teams have more background, more budget etc. If we don't set out to win, what the hell are we doing this all for in the first place.
