Merja Fischer

With big grief we have become the sad knowledge that on
12th October has passed away

Merja Fischer

Merja (encouraged by another Finish driver), asked us about 13 years ago for some information of the HMR races.
A year later, in 2007, she and her Formula Vee, a FinnVau, undertook the trip from Finland to the HMR-races.
It was Mid-Summer, and at that time we had on the calendar our races at the Nürburgring in Germany.
This was the first time we all met Merja.
She was very proud to know and be a friend of the famous Finnish racing driver, Mika Häkkinen.
Together with some other Scandinavian drivers she had some good battles on the track and had fun in the paddock.

She enjoyed this racing within the HMR so very much, so a year later she returned to join our races at Zandvoort.
This was a special event, called “60 Year Jubileum Races Zandvoort”. This was not only racing on the track from Zandvoort, but also on the program was a Parade to drive with the formula car to the Center of Zandvoort.
Of course, Merja was in for this on the Saturday evening and thoroughly she enjoyed this drive.
She was the only female formula driver in the group, so everyone paid a lot of attention to her, when she drove – without helmet – through the streets of Zandvoort.
She also had made a holiday plan for 2008, and this was to stay for some weeks in Europe between the races at Zandvoort and the Nürburgring.
So she asked if the HMR could have somewhere some space to park and take care of her FinnVau. And so this happened.
When she returned from her European holiday tour, she joint our races, again at the Nürburgring, as well.

The years after, Merja did not have the time to join our races, but the contact with her stayed alive.
From time to time she let us know how busy she was with other things.

A couple of years ago she let us know that she had the plan to want to do again a HMR race.
On her list was still standing to race at the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps with the HMR.
Unfortunately the date was impossible for her to come to Spa-Francorchamps, so she hoped to do in the future.

Dear Merja, may you rest in peace.
You were a very friendly and sporty racing-girl, and above all you were a very positive lady.

Our condolences to her family and friends, and we wish them all a lot of strength with this big loss.

It was a privilege to know her on and off the track.
