The HarrierZeuros backed Dodge Viper being campaigned by the first ever all girl driver team Annie Templeton and Amanda Stretton (C5's Dream Machine presenter), continued to impress at Sundays Snetterton round of the British GT Championship.

The Girl Power Racing 200 mph Le Mans machine is being run by CMS Technical and Race Operations of Buntingford, Herts, who in 2001 and 2002 were the official factory MG team at the world famous Le Mans 24 hour race. The ultimate aim of the team and its key partner HarrierZeuros is to take an all girl driver team to this classic French event.

Sunday saw a superb leap forward by the girls, the 11th place finish at Doningtons first round becoming an excellent 5th in class at Snetterton, with both drivers looking smooth and composed. The longer 2-hour race format also allowing the professionalism of the Le Mans experienced CMS crew to shine through. Annie says about the weekend "We are obviously pleased with showing such an improvement, our next goal is to be up to speed earlier in the race weekend, which will push us closer to the podium"

The team now moves on to the scenic Knockhill track near Edinburgh, where May 11th sees two 40 minute sprint races form rounds 3 and 4 of the championship. Ends.
