Flying under the radar with her modest attitude towards the upcoming race, don’t be surprised if Magdelena makes her way to the front of the pack at this year’s Mazda6 Celebrity Challenge.
My first car was a?
Red Mazda 121 and others nicknamed it "The Red Jelly Bean"
The person I would like to beat the most is?
Have you attended a F1 before?
Yes, 2012 Melbourne, it was absolutely incredible, Formula 1 is the sexiest sport there is. It's the ultimate in athletic ability, technology, endurance and team work with amazing cars on top of that!
What made you decide to participate in the M6CC?
I really love motorsport so it seemed like the opportunity of a lifetime. At the same time though, I'm terrified as I'm not the most skilled or confident driver. I'm really going out of my comfort zone to take this challenge.
Where do you think you will place?
Unless I have a Steven Bradbury moment, I will probably be in the bottom half.
