      Well, she's not his problem anymore. He can do what he likes and find someone while he's satisfied with chasing his own dreams. I took up motorcycling last year for the same reason.

      Awesome story. Maybe better than that guy who bought a Lambo after breaking up with his girlfriend and can't afford to fix it.

      I was hoping since I came into the thread late he would have finished writing about the second day! This is pretty much the only time I've ever been literally on the edge of my seat in suspense while reading a thread on TCL!

      OP, this is sincerely awesome and a super interesting read.

      Im glad you decided to follow your dreams and pursue your racing license. Woman can really suck, glad you were able to cope though. Been there - done that, its never easy.

      Ill be following this to see what the outcome is, keep it up man.

      100% agree. Need more of the story.

      Quite honestly a good heartwarming story. So many people get bent out of shape after a break up.

      Way to buck up and take your dreams into your own hands.

      Much better than that lambo story!

      He's gotta get the license, right? It says dream come true in the title! I demand a happy ending!

      Wonderful thread. I am going through a divorce so i can completely feel you pain. Good for you to go out and chase a dream. Ive given up many nice cars over the course of my marriage and once i get my head a little more clear, i will go get something fun again to bring back the automotive passion that a house and the need to support a woman and her family took away from me.
