2019 was my first complete championship in the United States, with an overall victory in the EXR RACING SERIES. I am proud to have won the first overall championship of my career. Besides this highly successful season, I participated in the W-Series selection, which is a new racing series just for women with the goal of bringing a woman to Formula 1.
In the beginning of 2018, I raced for the first time in the AMG GT4 racer in Hockenheim and Spa. Later in the year, I raced in the EXR RACING SERIES at Spring Mountain on the Mitjet EXR LV02. I am very proud of finishing both races on P2 as the fastest female driver. After this successful debut, I was sure to focus on the United States for my upcoming racing career.
In 2017, I switched back to endurance racing and started at Boerdesprint in a Chevrolet Cruze race car. With two victories, it was a highly successful season. Besides my racing in Germany, 2017 was the first year I started racing in the United States at one of the largest tracks in the U.S., even worldwide: Spring Mountain. I also made my debut in a Nascar for the European Nascar Championship.
2016 was the year I started in the GT4 European Series for Reiter Engineering. The KTM X-Bow GT4 was my first race car with rear-wheel drive, and I was increasing my driving knowledge enormously during this year. On top of a completely different race car than I was used to driving, I had to face a lot of new racetracks, like Monza, Spa, or Hungaroring.
In the year 2015, I started in the Audi Sport TT Cup for Team ABT Motorsport. I finished five times on the podium, which makes this one of my most successful years. I finished the season third in the female championship.
2014 was the year I started in the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup at the DTM. The 285 hp Volkswagen Scirocco was powered by natural gas. The highlight of my season was certainly my race in Moscow against Formula 1 drivers and other legends of the sport. I finished this race as the fastest woman, in front of a huge crowd of spectators.
In 2013, I switched from endurance races to sprint races in the MINI Trophy as part of the GT Masters. Already the second race was probably one of the biggest challenges I’ve ever had, and at the same time, my season highlight — a race on the famous Nordschleife as support for the 24h race. I finished the season as P1 in the female championship. Besides racing in the MINI Trophy, I worked as a test and reserve driver for the championship-winning team Audi Prosperia ABT Racing in the GT Masters.
In 2012, I started in the ADAC Chevrolet Cup. I knew most of the racetracks from the year before, and so I was more confident in my driving. During this year, I finished three times on the podium. My teammate and I were fighting for the championship up to the last race of the season. At the end, I finished fourth in the overall Championship and first in the female championship.
After I had finished my day of testing successfully, I started my first professional racing season in 2011. The race car was a Chevrolet Cruze with 140 hp without ABS and other electronics. The race lasted four hours with at least three pit stops to change drivers. The races were held in Oschersleben, Hockenheim, Nürburgring, Sachsenring, and Assen, to name a few of the tracks. I learned a lot during this year, and I was able to achieve one podium in my first year of racing, which made me very proud.
