Girls Power to impressive finish.

The mighty Harrier Zeuros backed Dodge Viper being campaigned by Annie Templeton and Amanda Stretton (C5's Dream Machine presenter), made its race debut in Sundays British GT championship round at Donington Park.

Girl Power racings 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, and the ultimate aim of the team is to take an all girl driver team to the classic French event.

Sundays race saw the girls finish in a creditable, but un-representative 11th place, team manager Doug Bebb commented " Annie and Amanda have done a fantastic job, we arrived on Thursday with zero track time, and yet every time out on the track we have gone quicker and quicker. We would certainly have finished comfortably higher up the order had we not been the only team who had to sit in the pits for a compulsory two minutes when refuelling"

The team now have a solid base to work on and look forward to the next race at Snetterton, where a longer two hour race distance will mean that all of the runners will have that dreaded 2 minute long extra stop to contend with.
