Beitske Visser (NL)
Dallara Volkswagen
ADAC Formel Masters Oschersleben 2012

After her first car race in a Praga at Assen in 2011 -which she won- is 2012 her first complete season in autosport. Her debut was promising but in only the second raceweekend at Zandvoort she had a big crash and had to stay overnight in hospital. The following day the Frisian returned undaunted and scored a 8th place in the second race of the weekend and won the 3rd, the first woman to do so.

Closer medical examination showed she had raced with a broken back. To a question of a reporter if she was in pain she answered: "only on the warm-up and cool-down lap, it's amazing what concentration and adrenaline can do".

With that kind of determination I think we'll be hearing a lot more of her in the future...
