If there is one thing I love about my life is the diversity of work, jobs and careers I have - all at the same time. From financial services and blockchain to education and female entrepreneurship to being a board member of a foundation for motorsports. The latter brings me to the historic track of Sebring in Florida this week for the FIA WEC 1000 Miles of Sebring.

There is always an incredible amount of energy at a race. At an endurance race however this seems to multiply exponentially. The anticipation, the planning, the coordination, the chemistry between race drivers, crew, photographers and marshals - all intense, all friendly, all respectful.

The Media Center in Sebring is nothing like those of Le Mans, Shanghai or Fuji - but the energy of the crowd is remarkable here - and this is just the day of testing.

Looking forward to see how Racing Team Nederland will perform, BMW Team MTEK is on my radar and of course Dempsey-Proton Racing.

the 24h of Le Mans - part I

I love my Louboutin's, but there are times they need to be swapped for a pair of sneakers, and the 24h of Le Mans is one of those times. This weekend, on June 13th and 14th, Audi, Porsche, Nissan, Toyota and many others will once again take to the Sarthe track in Le Mans for the 83rd annual endurance challenge - and we will be there to cheering them on. 

You might think that an endurance race is not something for women - however, this is more than a car race, there is history here and this year for the first time the ACO (l'Automobile Club de l'Ouest) has created a space during the Le Mans 24h entirely devoted to women and the motor car, but above all this is France and that is always lovely. So we've packed the umbrellas, our national flags and our camera's and look forward to starting our journey to Le Mans tomorrow.
