The old adage of “Art mimics life” can be used in just about any category when used in contrast or comparison to life. Whether in professional or personal circles, just about any situation or circumstance can be used as a learning tool of what to do in life and at times what not to do.
In the story of Indy driver Katherine Legge, she has found that in both her personal and professional life her obstacles in both scenarios have allowed her to learn, grow, and at times propel her towards reaching her goals and dreams. There are many choices we contemplate and make, sometimes they occur on a minute-by-minute basis. Legge has lived her life believing that time is of the essence both in life and in the seat of a race car - so it’s imperative to always make the right choices since we only live once.
Legge started racing during her childhood in Europe at the age of 15. While following her dream to race she usually made good decisions. At time’s she faltered and lost a little faith in her abilities. For awhile Legge was racing in the U.S. but after a scary accident in 2006 she went back to racing on European tracks (which took her a few steps away from her dream). A few years later Legge returned to the U.S. and broke through many obstacles and barriers (some of which were personal) to achieve her dream of racing on the Indy circuit.
