Two of my favourites are thai food and indian food. I drink most water and milk.
Wow. It's difficult to answer that question, you have to experience it yourself. But speed is what attracts most. I want to make things go quickly and that decisions are made as soon as possible.
I study International Marketing and Sales in Gothenburg, so much of my time I spend in school.
I also work extra at Red Bull and Haegermark Events.
Absolutely. A common idea about motorsport in general is that it’s only to give throttle, brake and turn a bit. It is actually much more than that.
In my class, we race with a six speed gearbox and change gears about 50 times per lap – that’s a lot of gear changing at one race weekend, in other words! It’s therefore important to have strong forearms, in order to keep the high tempo and good rhythm. Other muscles you have to use are biceps and the neck muscles. The heavy helmet we use makes the head want to go right in left corners and vice versa. Besides that, add the heat exposure in most of the races. Imagine sitting in a sauna with socks, gloves, balaclava, helmet, undershirt, shoes and racing suit.
Personally, I work out at group gym classes like BodyPump, Step, Zumba, and MRL which focuses on different types of work out.
In Sweden we are about 3-4 girls in the gearbox class, but abroad there are a few more. But still, the majority is men. There are no classes for girls only, we race all together.
That’s nothing you think about very often. The vast majority accept and respect that a girl is running amongst the guys. In my class, KZ2, where we run with gears, there’s a difference between female and male drivers because men are generally stronger in the muscles. But then it’s up to you to work out extra hard in the gym!
What I’m going to race forthcoming years, only the future can tell. It’s a lot of things that must come together in order to get a good seat somewhere. In the motor business I think you must be a dreamer, but at the same time a realist. Everybody knows this sport equals a lot of money, so good support from sponsors is necessary and that’s something I really have today, otherwise wouldn’t my racing in Germany be possible.
I would like to race formula cars or touring cars, and abroad if it's possible.
On Swedish tracks, where the straights not always are so long, the top speed is about 160 km/h in KZ2. Abroad, like on the French track Carole, the top speed is much higher, exceeding about 200 km/h. Remember that you sit approx. two cm from the ground = a great experience!
