Racing Career

EXR Racing Series

In 2018, I will race in the EXR Racing series at Spring Mountain on the Mitjet EXR LV02. Furthermore, it’s the first time I will race for Mercedes-Benz. I already fulfilled 2 test days in the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT4 to be best prepared for the upcoming races. 


In 2017 I switched back to endurance racing and started at Boerdesprint in a Chevrolet Cruze race car.  With two victories, it was a highly successful season.


2016 I started in the GT4 European Series for Reiter Engineering. The KTM X-Bow GT4 was my first race car with rear wheel drive.


In the year 2015, I started in the Audi Sport TT Cup for Team ABT Motorsport. I finished 5 times on the podium which makes this one of my most successful years. I finished the season 3rd in the female championship. 


2014 I started in the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup at the DTM. The 285 hp Volkswagen Scirocco was powered by natural gas. The highlight of my season was certainly my race in Moscow against Formula 1 drivers and other legends of the sport. I finished this race as the fastest woman in front of a huge crowd of spectators. 


2013 I switched from endurance races to sprint races in the MINI Trophy as part of the GT Masters. Already the second race was probably one of the biggest challenges I’ve ever had, and at the same time my season highlight: A race on the Nordschleife as support of the 24h race. I finished the season as P1 in the female Championship. Besides of my racing in MINI Trophy, I worked as an test and reserve driver for the championship winning team Audi Prosperia ABT Racing in the GT Masters.


In 2012 I was starting in the ADAC Chevrolet Cup and finished three times on the podium. Me and my team mate were fighting for the championship up to the last race of the season. At the end, I finished 4th in the overall Championship.


After I had finished my day of testing successfully, I started in my first professional racing season 2011. The race car was a Chevrolet Cruze with 140 hp without ABS and other electronics. The race lasted 4 hours with at least 3 pit stops to change drivers. Thus, always after about 1 hour, the driver was changed. The races were e.g. in Oschersleben, Hockenheim, Nürburgring, Sachsenring and Assen. I achieved already one podium in my first year of racing. 


Racing Instructor

Since 2014 I work as a instructor besides of my racing. I absolute enjoy the work as a coach because I can give some of my motorsport knowledge to my customers. Starting from teaching the ideal line, correct cornering up to passing strategies and drifting sessions. Video and Data analysis helps bringing the best results out of the customer. 

In summer time, most of my trainings are held at the race tracks. As the race tracks are closed in winter time, the focus then is on winter trainings in Lapland, Austria and Sweden. 

Some of my partners are Red Bull Ring, Mercedes Benz Driving Events, Smart, Toyota, Ferrari, Audi, Porsche and Bridgestone.


Media / Influencer

I absolutely enjoy my work in front of the cameras and if I can combine it with my passion for cars, its even better.

At the moment my TV Show „Dreamcars“ is running on Sky. I also took part at „Grip, das Motormagazin“ (RTL2) and „NITRO AUTOQUARTETT“ (RTL Nitro).

Furthermore I did a lot of fun TV projects in the past, like Solitary (Pro7), MTV Home, Columbus (RTL2), TV Total Turmspringen, RTL Punkt 12 to just name a few.



My debut in Playboy I had in 2008 as Playmate of the month. Just a few weeks ago I was invited by Playboy to a casting, was taken and shot a few days later in Vienna my first Playboy pictures. Apparently not just the German readers liked my photos and so I became a Playmate in 9 countries all over the world. In mid-2009 I was chosen as Playmate of the Year and from that moment on, my life was no longer the same as before. Starting with my visits to Los Angeles at the Playboy Mansion, the legendary parties, meeting High Hefner and all the other „Bunnys“ up to great bunny Jobs in Rio de Janeiro and New York. It was and still is an endless journey and I am more than thankful to be part of the Playboy family.

In 2009, I was the „lucky charm“ bunny in front of the Playboy branded DTM car. After some races I felt, that it would be a way more interesting driving the race car instead of modeling in front of it. 

So I started with a test day, which was very successful and two month later I started my first racing season. From that moment, I had my very own „luckycharm“ bunnies standing in front of my race car, which made me so happy. 

After so many years, I still have a very close connection to Playboy and I am very proud to represent the bunny on my racer.
