"[...] This lovely lady (Heidi Hetzer) is not only a local Berliner hero but also quite the serious competitor when it comes to automotive racing – Mille Miglia, Rallye Monte Carlo, Carrera Panamericana [...]. She is now planning to follow in the tire tracks of Clärenore Stinnes, who was the first woman AND the first person to drive around the world.
If you are thinking that Heidi is planning her 2014 tour de force around the world in a modern car with all the luxurious amenities (GPS and seat heaters would come in handy) you are very much mistaken. Her vehicle of choice for this quest is a 1921 Hispano-Suiza. Now, how badly do we all want to be her co-pilot? [...]"
Btw, Mrs. Hetzer is not a stranger to us. She doesn't race her cars without Mathé® Classic — the additive which makes our Chromjuwelen Motor Öl so awesome. The photo below, showing Heidi Hetzer and Olaf Dobrowolski, was taken during the Hamburg-Berlin-Klassik, where Heidi called Mathy to bring over some Mathé® Classic for her 1921 Hispano-Suiza, as she was running short.
Due to my personal addiction to cruise in classic cars I have not driven too many modern sport-/super-/hyper- or racecars. Furthermore, I am really, really awfully bad in things like motorsport. Both, if you want to chat with me about Formula whatever, and local stuff like 24 Hours Nürburgring. But you know what's funny, Chris? The Artgega GT – you and Ben picked for your latest "Rent4Ring" masterpiece – has been amongst the cars I had the priviledge to cruise in.
Your drone- and quatrocopter work is a killer. And I am really sorry I have not found yet a project where we are in cahoots with each other.
