Half time - long time no see!

August 2, 2017

Hey guys,

 

Very sorry for the poor updates this year.
Plan was to make a new website in the beginning of the season and therefore the blog got forgotten.

 

Once again, sorry for that - so here follows a BIG update from what´s been!



If we handle my main program first for this year, ADAC GT Masters with Audi Sport racing academy, it´s been a challenging season so far.
As a new team into GT Masters, with an even tougher opponents this year compared to last year has not been easy.

But, as #LeagueOfPerformance we welcome challenges and last race we did our best result so far: P13!
Main goal is to always improve, and to be within top 10 is for sure our ambition.

We´ve had 4 race weekends so far, and have now 3 left: Nürburgring - Sachsenring - Hockenheim.
 

To be racing with my team mate Ricardo Feller has worked out very well, he´s very fast and we make a good duo.

We´ve had (and still have) our coaches Rahel Frey and Pierre Kaffer with us during the weekends, a great opportunity to get tips and learn from their experience.
Very happy to have Rahel as a coach, since she´s now been my idol for a few years. 

 

My second program this year has been and is STCC together with PWR Racing Junior Team.
I didn´t think I´d enjoy racing in Sweden this much as I have, but obviously: I do!
I felt straight away comfortable with the team, and an enormous support from their side.
For every race weekend (3 done so far, 2 left) we´ve improved our work and set up with the car, and so has also my speed compared to the other Swedish races.
Last weekend we had top 6 times, so now the goal for the next rounds is to get it all together also for the qualifying´s and race´s.

I feel lucky to be able to race this much, in total 12 race weekends, and around 15 test days.

For a football player that might sound little, but for me as a racing driver, that´s a lot!
I do know though, that´s there is and has been lots of work behind it. To get to this point, racing this much.
Also during the season it´s tough work, to improve, learn from mistakes, and staying positive in tough times.
In the end what motivates me is: happiness.
When I enjoy driving, when I smile and when I´m simply happy.
That´s the thing that brings me and pushes me forward - the goal to smile.

So I guess conclusion now, half time into the season is: I wanna do things that makes me happy, makes me smile. So that´s what I will do.
That means; Onto Nürburgring!

Love to you all,

Mikaela
