A strong team of women: Victoria Fross and her Lotte

A strong team of women: Victoria Fross and her Lotte

22.03.2014: Women are the very centre of the IMC Motorsport team. Apart from newcomer Lisa Brunner

Women are the very centre of the IMC Motorsport team. Apart from newcomer Lisa Brunner, Victoria Fross will be driving her MINI „Lotte“ once again for the Leipzig based team.


In the second full season Fross intends to score in the Rookie Cup of the Deutsche Tourenwagen Challenge – ADAC PROCAR and to assert herself in Division 3 as well.


The team will start their season preparations by taking part in the touring car test days in the Motorsports Arena Oschersleben on the upcoming weekend.



The team of IMC Motorsport includes female drivers – that is a unique situation for the time being. What is it about motorsports that fascinates you?




Victoria Fross: Yes, that’s true. At the moment, we are the only permanently enrolled women in the starter field but I do hope that others will join us.

There are several things that fascinate me: For instance, the technology of my MINI. Getting the most out of my car is very addictive and time and again I develop the ambition to improve as a rookie and to continue to learn.


I do like competition on the circuit combined with the goal to work my way towards the more experienced driver. And of course there is also the feeling of being part of a team and of constantly making friends and fans at the race circuits.


Does motorsports run in your family?


Victoria Fross: Motorsports is very important to my family. Whether it is a broadcasted Formula 1 race or the motorcycle world championship and Nascar – they are all must-see´s. I also cannot remember a single family car, which fully complied with the series model.


However I am the first family member to have the chance to be actively doing this exciting sport. I do have to thank my parents very much for this opportunity.



 Your start number is 33. Is that your lucky number?


Victoria Fross: It has meanwhile become my lucky number. My start number can now be found in other areas of my life as well, for example there is a 33 on the license plate of my private car.



What does a perfect race weekend look like to you?


Victoria Fross : Since I am not yet that experienced on rain-slicked circuits, sunshine would be a great start into the weekend. And of course a good result in the practice sessions and the two races.


I want to gain as much experience as possible with every kilometre and I intend to bring my Lotte home without any damages in order to minimize my team’s workload. If the first bigger passing manoeuvres succeed this season, I will already be happy. 





What are you looking forward to most in the upcoming season?


Victoria Fross: The new starter field in the DTC– ADAC PROCAR, much bigger than before, is very exciting. I am looking forward to see many known faces and to get to know my new Procar competitors. I am especially excited about Zandvoort, a circuit I only know by hearsay so far.



If you were to present your car, how would to do that?


Victoria Fross: Her name is “Lotte”. She can be prissy sometimes and stubborn as other girls, too. But she never let me down and has taken good care of my in my first crash.
