If you mean this one
... I'll give a short summary
Albert says that it's always been a dream for him to become a racedriver, as a child who wasn't allowed to drive go karts but instead motorcross. It was just a hobby for him and nothing he took too serious. One day he heard about the Lupo Cup and my mum allowed me to do it (if I'm not mistaken he was still under age when he started
) and that way everything started.
They ask him if he has any special rituals before he races or if he's superstitious or if he prays. Albert says that he does pray, some Ave Marias depending on how much time he got but that is the only thing he does and he doesn't have any other rituals.
They tell that Albert is actually still a student and so doesn't have any training, he basically just goes there on the weekends and races cause he is the amateur of the team while Kox is the pro.
When he got the race clothing on he says that it is a lot of pressure and the boss said that he always should go full speed and what his boss says are clear orders and he must obey them. Otherwise it won't work.
When Gloria is sitting on the couch she is very excited and says that it is really thrilling. There is a pro in front of him (who got more experience).
The reporter says that at first Gloria was a bit sceptical but somehow Albert was always into cars from the day he was born. Albert says that "brum brum" were his first words according to his mother (don't know if it is the same in english but in German those are the words toddlers use for cars
) and that he was always around cars.
Gloria confirms that it wasn't something else like "baba" instead "brum brum".
The reporter tells that due to being the Prince of Thurn und Taxis carracing will probably always stays just a hobby for Albert because of his duties.
Albert tells that Gloria is visting the important races and the ones that are close to home. He likes when she is there because he is usually on the winners' rostrum like the time when they made the video.
She is pretty proud of Albert and can judges the risks of the sport better now. She says that to be honest travelling or mountain climbing is much more dangerous. And because there are more dangerous other sports she can be quite relaxed about it.
That's it... Hope it was the video you wanted
