37-year-old Nina Jerančič, along with seven other racers in Papenburg, Germany, drove at an average speed of more than 221 kilometers per hour, thus helping Mazda to set a new world record. Three Mazda teams gathered in Papenburg, where they raced down the track in three production Mazda6s with CD175 diesel engines, where 24 racers won multiple titles. The most important record is also Nina's, namely she finished the 24-hour "race" at a speed of 221,072 kilometers per hour (average!). Otherwise, each of the Mazdas won a record in terms of distance or time.

Otherwise, Nina Jerančič is known in motorsport, as she has won quite a few victories so far - 50 international and four titles in karting at home. In addition to racing, she also tested herself as a sports journalist on Slovenian commercial television. She also raced in the Renault Campus formula series (similar to Ralf Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve), and in the Lotus formula and of course in the GT series, where she drove in the Porsche Cup and Ferrari Challenge.

Finally, it is worth mentioning that Mazda put together three teams, where each was one professional racer and car enthusiast selected from the side of the competition in Germany. Drivers had to change every two and a half hours, driving a total of more than 5300 kilometers. It was also forbidden to drive in the breeze, but to make it more interesting, it was eventually hit by a storm with a strong wind.
