My uncle passed away recently, and at his funeral his great passion for motor racing, and specifically within that, with engineering/aerodynamics, was spoken about with aplomb. As my father spoke about, my uncle really could have been an outstanding worker in the garage of a formula one team, however he never had the opportunity to go to university, and was never blessed with large sums of money, and instead spent almost his entire working life in a smallish country town, fixing all issues with vehicles that most people in the country (and probably the vast majority in the city) couldn't fix, and usually for a small sum, even often working overtime for free.
I know, this is unheard of for a mechanic :lol:
But I very much liken it to you, in the same terms of your level of passion and expertise for/in road race design. You - like my uncle - don't do it for the money, in fact you do not do it for the money AT ALL, but I think it is a small shame that you do not get to work for an official race design organisation. Just your knowledge of history and geography is incredible, before we even get to your knowledge of road cycling.
Don't worry, I am not trying to write your eulogy. We want you to stick around for a while yet
