75-Year-Old Woman To Drive around World in 91-Year-Old Car
26 October 2012 - Autoblog
Heidi Hetzer is a serious driver, she always has been. And letting advanced age – be it hers or that of her antique vehicle – isn't going to stop her from having an adventure.
The 75-year-old racer plans on circumnavigating the globe along the same route taken by the first person ever to drive a car around the world: Clärenore Stinnes.
Stinnes did it in 1928 and Hertzer plans to one up the original driver by using her 91-year-old Hispano-Suiza roadster. The legendary Berlin native will begin her journey in 2014.
