Welcome to my thirteenth weekly blog!
12H Race Against Dementia
This was an amazing day, 0n 22-05-2021 we drove the 12H Race against Dementia.
We raised more than €7000, which is a lot more than expected. I drove together with Alethea Boucq and Sarah Johnson. We ended up P13, I came two laps too short at the end of the race to get P12. I was 3 a 4 seconds a lap faster, but unfortunately, we run out of time.
I enjoyed driving with the ladies in this special race, it was an emotional day for us!
Thank you to Alethea Boucq and Theamusante community for organizing this, it was amazing!
More female Racers season 3
The More Female Racers Round 3 was Monday 24-05-2021 at Spa Francorchamps.
Unfortunately, Eris Aphelion couldn’t make it on time and I had to drive it on my own.
I had that morning my first vaccine and wasn’t feeling well.
Luckily I was allowed to drive it on my own because normally it is not the format for the MFR. I started at P8, unfortunately, I got taken out on the first lap. I ended up with P12 and P6 in class.
The next race is hopefully together with Eris again and at Kyalami.
Alpine Esports Series
I had an amazing opportunity to drive the Alpine Esports Series.
It was a surprise for me and I knew it one day before the first and second rounds.
To be honest, I never drove the Alpine GT4 before, I had a little bit of practice before the first round at Monza and the second round at Spa Francorchamps.
I’m really looking forward to the third and final round 01-06-2021 at Paul Ricard. Luckily I have some more time to practice and I will see where I end up!
Would be great if I can do it better than the first and second round!!
