Follow Patrick Schober, a young race driver.
Patrick turned his passion for racing into ambition, dedication and he is extremely focused on pushing forward, pushing the limits to become constantly better.
Racing is in Patrick’s DNA since already his father, Peter Schober, was a very successful motor sportsman and racer since the 1980s.
He won several national touring car championships in Austria and Slovakia.
The family enterprise Procar Motorsport is one of the leading competitors in the area of motorsport events and therefore driving formula race cars, race taxis, and company events have been constants in Patrick’s life.
Already at the age of 9 Patrick steered a Porsche 996 GT3 on a race track - of course with his father in the coaching seat.
Patrick made history when he - at the age of 10 - first steered a formula race car on an airfield race track.
Ever since he has been regularly practicing in formula race cars while - at the same time - he has been very successful in kart competitions culminating in his participation in the Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals (RMCGF) at the Kartódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portimao, Portugal in 2017 as Slovakia’s official representative.
Patrick sees his future in racing, his passion is racing but in the end it all comes down to budget, finance, networks and sponsors.
No matter how much experience, talent, passion, determination and focus you have got to offer, it is still money and luck, in whatever order, that literally keeps you in business.
