11-year-old Indonesian fan Shaina Salvia interviews Helmut Dähne, whose 42-year career began in motocross and went on to include 15 German championship titles, victory (alongside team-mate Hans Otto Butenut) in the 1976 1000cc Production TT at the Isle of Man, third in the World Endurance championship and setting the all-time motorcycle lap record at the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in 1993.

"Nürburgring is my favourite circuit, especially because it is difficult and long. I like to ride, I don’t want to go around in circles like these modern race tracks all are. They are fun for a while but really the big fun is here at the Nürburgring with hundreds of curves, uphill, downhill… That's really what I enjoy."
