F1 Paddock Club Expert Host
At the F1 Heineken Dutch GP in Zandvoort I was working as a F1 Paddock Club Expert Host for the first time and it was a blast. We coordinated several activities for the customers, being it the track tour, photo safari on the track as well as bringing guests to the pit lane tours. Furthermore, guests could take pictures of the championship trophies with the constructors and drivers titles.
We were on duty for adding value with in-depth motorsport knowledge and explaining the different elements of the track from a driver's perspective.
Of course that was a special atmosphere in "Max Town" with a great festival feeling although the different rules applied. But I guess it has been an amazing event for all.
For me especially as a F1 fan since my childhood this was the top highlight so far in my motorsport working related career!
Successful NLS Doubleheader weekend from 10-11 July
What a weekend! I was back in my happy place and satisfied with my performance after nearly one year back on track. I was fastest on our car in qualifying and both races so I was also doing my first race start on Saturday. Made my way slowly through the pack after two laps in the race which then resulted for us with P4 in the BMW M240i cup.
My team mate was then ready for the start on Sunday where then I could push in the middle stint and we ended up on P3. This was great as I could improve on the points where I left of in 2019 when I last sat on this car as 2020 I drove the Cayman. Now I work on the next steps from the data analysis to improve for what is upcoming.
Back in the race car for the NLS Doubleheader weekend in July
Feels so good to be finally back in the race car when I will hit the track again in July with a BMW M240i from Adrenalin Motorsport at the NLS Doubleheader. So excited that all my work pays off that I can finance two races this year and let's hope for good weather that the races can take place in full swing.
Track commentating again this time in Assen for the DMV
Back on track in Assen where it all started for me in 2016 when I had my first full race season in a race car. Now I was on the other side commentating the races for the DMV BMW 318ti Cup as well as DMV NES 500 with Rick Keller and Linda Terting who was the runner in the pit lane catching our interview guests.
Reporter in the pit lane for Nürburgring TV at the ADAC TOTAL 24h race
It is always a pleasure to work with such a great team from Nürburgring TV together on such big projects like the ADAC TOTAL 24h race. I was again in the pit lane catching interviews from ROWE, Glickenhaus, Teichmann, AMS and Novel Racing during the four days with lots of nice interviews and chats with the drivers and team principles. It has been great to see each other again although the race was not really 24h long unfortunately. But at least not as worse as for the drivers it was for us, working in such a vibrating environment as we also saw some fans coming slowly back to the race track.
From SimRacing to RealRacing - Track commentator together with Linda Terting for DMV BMW 318ti Cup / DMV NES 500
It is so exciting that I was given the opportunity by Thomas Röpke to be a track commentator together with Linda Terting now also in real racing besides my various sim racing jobs. That is an important step into the right direction and also my first English speaking commentary is in the books for the More Female Racers by Thrustmaster Rockets for The Sim Grid. It makes so much fun and so happy to what comes this year.
