My advice
1. Keep your passion, it is what will take you far.
2. Gain as many skills as possible. Along with driving, do you know how to weld? Run a mill? How about compute roll centers with a suspension analyzer? Can you setup a data acquisition system? Most people start on small teams and in those cases, the more skills you have, the more valuable you are.
3. Go to as many schools as you can afford. Good instruction is the key.
4. Practice every opportunity you have. Go to an autocross. Run karts. Anything that puts you behind the wheel.

Please share more details on the GRC and ERC.

Good luck.
