Also had a spell in the European Truck Championship, and in 2012, returned back to that series, after spells in off-road events and rallies, including the Dakar rally. In 2014, she was only in trucks after a few years of combining different driving aspects and continued this until 2016. For two years she stayed away from driving and now works as an ambassador for Ostol oils and as a TV commentator and motivational speaker and journalist focusing on long-distance rallies.
