Welcome to my thirty eighth weekly blog!!

Last week I didn’t do any races, because I was moving stuff to the UK. With the stuff, I mean my rig. It was a lot of work to get it in the van, and also to build it up again. Luckily, I had help from Frostybird, my mother, Sophie, Sophie’s brother, and a friend from Sophie, thank you all! This weekly blog will be a preview for the upcoming races.


Theamusante Community Rush Hour
On Friday 19-11-2021, is the second round of Theamusante Community Rush Hour, 1 hour at Nürburgring. It is multiclass team racing, I drive in the GT3 Bentley, Sophie drive in the GT4 Porsche.

Multiclass racing makes it difficult because there are also drivers with less experience in multiclass racing. It is good that they learn it, and it was going well in the first round. I ended up P5, and Sophie at P10, in the pro class.

That brings us in P8 in the championship. Because of the multi class results, this can change very quickly. There are 8 rounds, and it makes it very interesting to see what’s going to happen.


Pro League Racing; Team Championship
Round 3, of the Pro League Racing; Team Championship is 2 hours at Monza. The last race at Zolder was very difficult, I was on Sophie’s rig, and makes it really difficult to drive. I practiced in her rig, but without my adjusted pedals, it was very difficult to drive.

I have many hours in my rig, and to change to another rig is very difficult with my disability. We are standing at place 7 in the championship, the difference to P5 is 14 points. Bernadette (the Bentley) is very good at Monza, hopefully, we can go for a good result!


The Sim Grid More Female Racers
On Monday 22-11-2021, is it time for round 4 of The sim Grid More Female Racers at Silverstone. Round 3 went very well, Dennis Schöniger and I finished at P3. I’m not sure if I drive with Dennis or Giorgio, on Monday. I don’t mind, I learn from both of them, and enjoy driving with them.

Silverstone is going to be a difficult race, because I’m 2 seconds off, from my Bentley pace. I need to practice a lot, and hopefully, we can go for a good result!
