Hürtgen started her career in karting and moved to German Formula Three. In 1993, during the F3 invitational race of the Monaco Grand Prix weekend, she suffered hand injuries in a roll-over crash, which ended her single-seater career.
She began racing again with touring cars in 1995, winning the Austrian championship, followed with sports car racing, in which she scored class wins, in an LMP-675 class car or a Porsche, in the American Le Mans Series as well as in the 24 Hours of Daytona and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
In 2000, she returned to the site of her crash, to win the Monaco Historic Grand Prix in a Maserati.
In 2005, Team Schubert and Hürtgen moved on the VLN endurance racing series on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Hürtgen won the VLN championship in 2005, making her the first female champion since Sabine Schmitz in 1998.
