Historic Formula racer with Volkswagen power in the rear
Daniela Hacker likewise worked her way up the mountain with Volkswagen power in the rear, driving an authentic Formula Vee racing car from 1968, as one of the few women in the field of starters. Formula Vee was a series for up-and-coming drivers in the 1960s and 70s involving Formula racing cars that were based on Volkswagen technology. Individuals who went on to become icons of motorsport such as Niki Lauda, Keke Rosberg and Nelson Piquet took their first turns in motorsport in Formula Vee. Daniela Hacker’s priority at the Edelweiß Bergpreis event wasn’t speed, but enjoyment: ‘The atmosphere, the time with kindred spirits and talking shop with the others in the drivers’ paddock – I absolutely love it,’ said Daniela, who hails from Bayreuth, in summary.
