My name is Alexandra. I was a forum member before, though back then one would have known me as Turbogirl. Heaven knows where my password went and since I've changed internet providers a few years ago, I no longer have access to my old e-mail address. Oh well, sometimes it's best to make a fresh start anyway.
I must have been lurking this amazing forum since 2011 or 2012 (can't really remember anymore) and I finally signed up in early 2014. Needed to leave twice due to serious real-life issues, which have taken me a lot longer to fix than I had anticipated.
So, here I am (again). Now what about me? I'm female, german, and I got roped into watching F1 at the start of the 1995 season by my older brother. What began as an avid following came to an all-time low point when Michael Schumacher retired (the second time) and I haven't watched a single race since Williams faltered.
Favourite F1 drivers: Michael Schumacher and Damon Hill. Favourite F1 teams: Williams, Jordan and Lotus (the original ones). Favourite F1 cars: Williams FW18, McLaren MP4/8, Jordan 197 (love the snakes) and Lotus 49. Favourite race tracks: Nürburging Nordschleife and Old Hockenheim.
Aside from F1, I am a motorsports history enthusiast, especially interested in all things Grand Prix (pre-war era to today), GT racing and female drivers from all around the globe. Since I'm a supporter of women in motorsports, I tend to follow as many series with female involvement as possible. In recent years, that was mostly GT racing, such as ELMS, ADAC GT Masters and a few of the lower formula classes (F3 for Sophia Flörsch springs to mind).
That's all I can think of right now. If you're looking for any new projects of mine, I'm setting up camp in the Black Stig Memorial Forum to catch up on a few things I left unfinished.
See you around!
