77-Year-Old Racing Driver Starts Two-Year Drive Around The World

You can read more about Hetzer's incredible planned journey in a 1930 Hudson here on EuroNews and right here on her website. She'll be updating as the journey continues in English and in German.

And make sure to watch the film above, put together by the excellent Chris Kippenberger a few years back when she first started planning this adventure.
