Looking Back

Once upon a Time, there was the Year 2014. When a new Year starts, you don’t know what will happen to you, or what it’ll bring to you. In my case the year ended not quite nicely. But I moved on.

I remembered to myself: “Stop saying I wish, I would – Do it. Do what ever it takes to make your dreams come true.” So I did. 2015 stands under a few stars. They’re called Happiness, Friends, Travel, and Experience.

Nurburgring, 24 h Race. In 2014 i had to watch it on TV. 2015 Nissan wanted me to support the firm with pictures from the event and the Nismo WEC LMP1 presentation.

High risk Situations. Refilling the petrol tank is not always the easiest part of the race. Here everything worked out.

It seems there’s work for my buddy Stefan (the mechanic). This Rowe SLS returns to the base. His brakes need to get fixed completely, but thankfully my mate knows how the race world works.

Germany goes to Spain for the French job. Flying on a private jet was not the worst thing that happened to me.

If you want a buddy who guides you in all areas, you should choose this car. On the usual streets or the dirty desert, either way it supports you everywhere.

Special stories take special hotels. The Bubble Hotel in the Spanish Desert made me feel like the Man on the Moon.

A special honour was to be the first German on this coming out. Even if it’s not my favorite car, this car conquers the European automobile market.

Drifting on the Nürburgring is extremely fast, even more if they drive the track in the opposite direction.

The Nürburgring is definitely one of my favourite places in Germany. It’s always worth it to visit that place. If you want to watch the race or if you battle yourself, everything is possible.

My first trip to the United States, next stop California

I asked Andrew, “What are you doing?” so he said, “I’m taking pictures.”

Especially the first finals. Incredible.

What a emotional moment. Congrats to Fredric Aasbø from Bil at Formula D Irwindale.

What a peaceful Sunset in the golden State. Everything feels different in the US – sometimes you lose yourself in the moment because it seems that time is standing still.

San Francisco. The only thing that i have to say is: “I love this Place!” Hopefully I will come back soon.

Streets of New York. There’s no Christmas feeling when it’s 59 degrees – but it’s comfortable though.
