BEHIND THE HELMET – LIAM LAWSON
A life where racing wasn’t an option is unimaginable for Lawson, and he says that he’s never had a back-up plan.
“I think I would have always ended up racing something, even before I could talk I was making car noises and gravitating to anything with a motor; diggers, tractors, anything. It’s funny, when I used to race go karts and in the early years, my peers were still focussing on school and having a back-up etc. But I have never had a back-up, 100% racing has been the only thing I have ever been interested in doing more of and pursuing,” he says.
There’s the speed and then there’s the feeling that you get from the speed.
“I have my whole career ahead of me”
