As they prime their final achievement, so too do they improve their thumbnail picture.

They begin with their marathon time, then in three months they’re leaping out a of aircraft. Then a year later they’re in a supercar.

Makes me want I’d saved my eyes on George Russell’s profile.

He begins as we speak’s Bahrain Formula 1 GP in the identical equipment as team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

Russell says Mercedes ‘not happy’ with automotive and fears McLaren and Ferrari pace

Check out his social media channels and you’ll see him prime to toe in Mercedes-AMG Petronas teamwear.

But precisely eight years in the past Russell’s experience was a Citroen 2CV.

I s**t you not.

From that, he graduated to a Peugeot 206 GTI as he contested a string of one-off races to improve his motorsport licence.

Now everyone knows you’ve gotten about the identical odds of being an astronaut as you’ve gotten of being an F1 driver.

But Russell is proof it could actually occur. And even when it doesn’t, what’s the hurt in discovering your thrills in a cheap-as-chips racing collection?

My mate Matt Anderson was spending a few quid on observe days when he realised for not way more he could possibly be racing in the 206 GTI Cup, like Russell did in 2014.

‘We share the buzz’

He purchased a T-reg (1999) 206 GTI on Facebook for £800, spent about £2,700 making it race-ready, and now he sleeps in the again of his Transit towing it to locations like Brands Hatch and Silverstone.

In reality, he’ll be racing at Silverstone in July, two weeks after the British F1 Grand Prix.

Matt, 36, {an electrical} contractor, stated: “It’s good, low cost, enjoyable, adrenaline.

“One set of tyres ought to final the season. I purchased a set of alloys for £50 and painted them. Then you’ve acquired your race entry prices, race gas, van gas and possibly a set of brake pads.

“There’s not much else towards the upkeep of the car during the season. Everything else you do over the winter.”

Matt has watched F1 from the grandstands at Silverstone, after his dad Ian (and chief mechanic) gained VIP tickets in an Air Ambulance raffle.

Now he’s bursting to race there himself — and hopefully make it to the prime step of that well-known podium. His greatest consequence was second at Mallory Park final year.

Matt stated: “It’s going to be mega racing on the identical bit of tarmac as Hamilton and Verstappen and Mansell and Schumacher and all of these legends.

“And I’ll be doing it in a automotive that prices lower than the facet pods on an F1 automotive. There’s all kinds of drivers in the 206 GTI Cup, from 18-year-olds as much as folks in their late 50s. We all share the identical ardour and buzz for it.

“One man used to race in the Porsche Carrera GT Cup. He didn’t need the depth of that any extra however he nonetheless had the itch to go racing.

“Others use it as a stepping stone to progress. The BMW 116 Trophy has caught my eye. I might look at that next year or the year after but obviously the costs will go up.”
