Susanne followed in the footsteps of her father Hansjörg who had been volunteering at events in the Vienna Stadium since he was young. One day in the early ‘90s the organiser of the Wiener Neustadt Speedway asked Susanne if she wanted to help at events. Suzanne started her Clerk of Course training while still at University, took the international licence in 1996 and later worked as a Sporting Steward at national level in the Austrian Federation (AMF). In 1999 she took the national Referee exam in Austria and refereed open meetings for the AMF. With her father Hansjörg and her brother, Suzanne rode a Honda XR 600 offroad. Susanne´s history in AMF started in 2000 when she became a member of the OSK Circuit Committee and member of the AMF (then OSK) Plenum. She was an Observer in the Track Racing Commission from 2000 to 2005, when she became fully fledged member. Having been Vice Chair of the Commission from 2008 to 2014, she then took over as Chair, a position she holds to this day. In 2009 in she made history by becoming the first woman to serve on the board of the AMF. She is also Member of Sporting Stewards professional association and Vice Chairman of the Sporting Stewards Examiners Commission. At FIM level Susanne took the Clerk of Course Licence in 1996 and has held it ever since. She took the FIM Referee Licence for first time in 2001 and was assigned to her first meeting as referee in Teterow/Germany in 2009. Since then she has refereed all kinds of Track Racing meetings at every level, except a SGP round in Speedway! Susanne is now working professionally for a Helicopter Rescue association in Austria and still volunteering in AMF, FIM Europe and FIM. She is mother of two teenagers, a daughter and a son, both of whom have followed her into volunteering. Susanne has been a member of the CFM since its launch in 2006. She is currently involved in the #FIMVolunteers #FIMFutureStars campaigns and is running Training Camps for Officials.
