4 Do you have any coach or mentor helping you?
-My team always helps me, my dad has teached me everything I know about Dragracing and my boyfriend helped me with my transition from cars to bikes as he has raced bikes before. Our tuner also helps out with advice and I think we make a great team when we all work together.
5 What will you race in 2020?
-The plan was to run the full FIM European series for the first time, and also some races from the Nordic series. But as it looks right now with the COVID-19 situation I’m just crossing my fingers we get to race at all.

8 What is your future main goal in racing?
-I have several big goals, some I can’t really discuss at the moment but I can tell you that I’m aiming big and hopefully you will see more records and championships from us in the future.
My main goal has always been to be able to work with racing/in the racing industry full time, and that will always be the big dream for me.
9 What is the best or most fun thing about racing?
-Oh it’s hard to pick just one thing, there is so much I love, my team the people around us, the passion and hard work behind it, celebrating after a good run and ofc the thrill and adrenaline rush of running over 200mph at the 1/4 mile.
10 What you think about the RacingTime.se brand and Champion watch?
