What a great weekend had by all
(or most) at Pembrey, not least because the weather held. Simply
the Breast romped home to a respectable 13th place finish – not bad for our first
race as a team. We even managed to get time with the Clerk of
the Course! Yes, our knuckles were duly rapped for missing the
New Drivers Briefing. We won’t be doing that again!!
The auction Friday before the race
is fast approaching, so don’t
forget your chequebook. If you’re going to be missing out
on the fun but want to put an advanced bid on anything, let us
know. Some great things up for grabs, amongst them, arrive and
drive at Mallory, a trip for four around the McLaren F1 Technology
Centre and of course, a meal with The Club Stud! Dig deep, it’s
all for a good cause.
See you at Snetterton! - Gillian
The car flew at our second test … literally. We
managed a full day and just keep getting quicker and quicker. What

want to know what happened! Sponsor our charity and we’ll

Pray for good weather this weekend and enjoy Easter!
A quick summary to get you
up to speed with our progress. Happy to tell you that we are
now all in possession of our racing licences! Zoe, Lynn and Gill managed
to dodge the snow on a recent test day at Anglesey. A place
with its own weather climate! We have another test day this
weekend, which we are all able to make. The car is still in
one piece! With everyone’s efforts,
we are certainly getting out there.
March’s issue of Practical
Performance Car published an article about us. Katrina did a
sterling job on BBC Radio Berkshire and Jordan (sorry chaps,
her schedule won’t allow her to get to Snetterton – we
tried) said she’d mention us in her column. We also have
many other feelers out there… The official t-shirt design
looks fantastic – designed by Lynn – and all proceeds
will be going to our charity, so don’t forget to buy yours.
Race suits? Well what can we say!
Thank you soooo much to the Women’s Motor Racing Associate’s Club, aka The Doghouse,
who have agreed to sponsor us for our suits and also donate £500
to our charity!
We are continually on the case, looking
for additional donations, raffle prizes, publicity, etc., so
if you know anybody that would like to help, send them our way!
