    I'll give you the short version to make it easier to read..

    My parents are divorced. I live with my mum. I've done motor racing since i was 11, it's been joint paid for between me, my mum and my dad. The racing season finished in October and we decided as a three that I would be moving on to a different formula this year.

    A couple of weeks ago, I brought up the topic in conversation to try and discuss it as i'm getting quite frustrated that nothing has been sorted out yet.

    My dad doesn't seem to be interested in me racing anymore, and has put so many obstacles in the way of me racing this year. Money is the main one. He says he cant afford for me to race what I want to race, yet he has just bought himself a race car that cost around £9,000. He bought his girlfriend a new mini cooper. He went on holiday to America for two weeks with four people, and he always buys everything expensive and brand new. Hypocrite much?!

    So we had this discussion, and i got upset and shouted at him that he didnt care about my racing since he got his new race car, and now he hasnt talked to me for two weeks. I sent him a text on wednesday but he didn't reply.

    I am very angry at him, but I'm at a loss over what to do now. am i being unreasonable? It seems im the adult out of the two of us!
