And when I was coming back, there was kind of a magic feeling when I was seeing this car come alive. So yeah, I really fell in love with cars in general, with anything, with an engine, with wheels. And yeah, later on I got randomly a chance to get into a small go-kart. And yeah, since then, the passion doesn't go away.
