EPISODE 38. HIGH PERFORMANCE RACING –> Juggling his school work with his career as a Professional Race Car Driver leaves 17-year old Bayley Hall a very busy young man. In his final year at school, Bayley is also a member of the Porsche team for McElrea Racing taking part in the Michelin Sprint Challenge around Australia.
With a passion for all things racing, Bayley started at 6 years old with go kart racing. How did he progress from that to where he is today? What sort of training does he have to do and where do simulators fit in? Very much a team sport, Bayley tells us about the preparation for a race weekend, the monitoring required for driver and car performance and dealing with media and fans. What is his dream goal? And where does sponsorship fit in?
Very appreciative of the support he has received from his parents and others over the years, Bayley tries to repay them by maintaining peak performance. Bayley tells us what it takes: you have to have the “balls” to do it! If you would like to have a go, get into go kart racing really young and just “get out there and give it a crack”!
