German crooner Udo Jürgens once sang “Mit 66 Jahren da fängt das Leben an”, which translates to “Life starts at 66”. We think Heidi Hetzer would beg to differ. This lovely lady is not only a local Berliner hero but also quite the serious competitor when it comes to automotive racing and all this at the age of 75. She is now planning to follow in the tire tracks of Clärenore Stinnes, who was the first woman AND the first person to drive around the world. If you are thinking that Heidi is planning her 2014 tour de force around the world in a modern car with all the luxurious amenities (GPS and seat heaters would come in handy) you are very much mistaken. Her vehicle of choice for this quest is a 1921 Hispano-Suiza. Now, how badly do we all want to be her co-pilot? What is left to say but good luck Heidi and Bon Voyage!
