Arriving in the DTM arena by moving up painstakingly through the various fields of motorsport, Susie Stoddart is a professional race car driver who entered the motorsports world via the classic method of karting before making it into the Mercedes-Benz DTM team in 2006.
She admits that at the start of her karting career, she was always getting passed and that her competitors were hitting her and seemed to go much faster. Although it was initially discouraging for her, she started to hit back harder and also went faster. Her own determination and motivation plus her father’s encouragement pushed her to do better.
The video begins with Susie talking about her beginnings and in between are interspersed clips of the SLS AMG being put through its paces by Stoddart. About 1:50 into the video, you can see Susie’s commitment and skill as she counters a big slide with an equal amount of opposite lock. Good stuff! I wish the video showed more of Susie driving that SLS AMG and a little less interview of her.
