WHO AM I?

I am a 24 years old, automotive engineering, student who is highly interested in cars – specifically classic cars and super sport cars. Since my childhood cars have always played a big role in my life and somehow have defined my life as it is today.

My Name is Laura Kukuk and I am from Germany, currently based in Munich.

Creativity was embraced in my early childhood, whether that was through  sketching, drawing or designing. I used to mainly focused in product design and later used my creativity to develop new automotive designs and understand the old, existing ones – especially the revolutionary automotive designs. Some of my earliest memories are helping my father fix and restore our classic cars.

Today, I am still embracing this creative sense in my daily life, at least I try to do so as often as possible and try to discover new things. Whether it is a quick sketch about an idea or scenery, a photography, coming up with designs or creative ideas as a problem approach.

For those who are a little more interested in my “career”…

Having worked for companies like Porsche Kremer Racing, DP Motorsport, Ford, EDAG, , Samuel Laurence, Thiesen, Movendi, Dipl. Ing. Klaus Kukuk (classic car specialist), HK Engineering and McLaren Automotive as well as studying automotive engineering in Munich and Cologne (Germany) has given me a good overview of the automotive industry. Especially drive events, concours, motorshows, rallies, races and other automotive events are a big role in my life and I try to be part of everything of interest.

For a few years I had been given the opportunity to develop some race experiences in smaller races across Germany and Europe. After having worked for several race teams, I have had the opportunity to join a new team in order to become one of their drivers, after I managed to get my racing license. This was an incredible, breathtaking journey which I will never forget. Sitting behind a steering wheel of a high powered racing car and beating it to its limits is an experience I find hard to describe- BREATHTAKING!

Currently I am restoring a MG TD from 1957 at my garage/work space. Not only is it great to have the opportunity of taking a car completely apart and reassembling it, but also adding the practical part to my theoretical studies is a satisfying feeling. I have the pleasure to overhaul my engine and gearbox at B&F Touring Garage with Peter Bazille, one of the greatest garages and machineries around.

That’s it for now!
