London 19th January 2004 -- Susie Stoddart, the world's top female racing driver, has won the prestigious Lord Wakefield Trophy for outstanding achievement by a female in motorsport worldwide.

The Award, the highest Motorsport accolade a female can win, was presented by FiA President Max Mosley on Friday at London's RAC Club, Pall Mall.

Susie is one of the British Racing Drivers' Clubs "Rising Stars" and amongst the favourites to win the 2004 Formula Renault title, which gets under way in April. In 2003 she finished seventh in the Championship and is planning to make the podium in each race this season.

Susie says: "I am delighted to receive the trophy from the MSA. 2003 was a great year for me, I got my first podium position, made the final of the McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver Award, and was recently voted Scotland's third most eligible female!"

Susie's aim is to be first successful British woman to compete for The F1 Title and is supported by BT Wholesale, running with the "Quicker with Broadband" logo on her car.
