Unbelievable – Style & Race (as registered company) is one year old today! There has a lot been going on in the past twelve months: I met incredible people in motorsports and visited a lot of races. Today it’s time to look back at some of the most amazing moments and to thank all of my supporters, customers and friends.
I had my own company at the age of 23. Why? Because I wanted to turn my passion for motorsport into a real job. Countless hours, a lot of energy and one year later I can look back at an incredible year. But: The adventure has just begun!
25 races. Eight different series. Finishing a master degree. A move to Germany. One dream job. Thousands of hours in the plane, on the highway and on racetracks. Champions, legend and aspiring talents. This is how I’d summarize my adventure.
Everything began last year when I was offered to interview the drivers of the DTM and ADAC GT Masters for a private Youtube Channel. Because I had so much fun doing that I decided to create my own blog and that turned into a small business 🙂 As bloody beginner I quickly had a great resume to present: No matter if Mercedes Motorsport Boss Toto Wolff, DTM Champion Marco Wittmann, the latest Formel E addition Maro Engel, Edoardo Mortara, Matias Ektröm, F1 Rookie Pascal Wehrlein and Esteban Ocon, Lucas Auer, legend David Coulthard and Ralf Schumacher. I was able to talk with all of them and had fun asking them some challenging questions.
Towards the end of the season 2016 I wasn’t only traveling for 12 out of 16 weekends but also submitted my Master thesis during the DTM finale in Hockenheim. I of course had to treat myself for a quick Porsche ride 🙂
At that time I already provided some customers with social media content and marketing supplies. But that wasn’t enough: I was looking for a possibility to live my dream 24 hours and seven days a week. One thing lead to another. In January 2017 I went to the 24h race in Dubai to support Marylin Niederhauser and hoped for a positive reply on the a great job I had applied for. A couple of weeks later it was official! I moved to Germany and started my official career in Motorsports, at PUMA, in March.
Ever since there has hardly been a week I’m not traveling. So far, DTM, Formula 1, ADAC GT Masters, 24h Series, Blancpain GT Series and GT4 have been on the schedule. This is how I’d like to continue!
A lot of people have asked if it was easy to work as a woman in motorsport. Well I can tell you that it is for sure not the easiest career path. But – I live and breath motorsport and try to increase my knowledge, do my best and constantly push myself to become better at what I do. Because as mentioned earlier – this is only the beginning 🙂 I can’t wait for many more challenges, countless learning processes, taking things as they come and most of all, for incredibly beautiful moments on the race tracks.
