"I'll make Murray Walker eat his words"

The bold statement of Irish woman racing driver Sarah Kavanagh who will race her Formula One Jordan in the European BOSS F1 championship at Donington Park on April 30th, despite Grand Prix commentator Murray Walker's assertion that a woman would never be strong enough for Formula One.

"I'm ready to prove that a woman can drive just as well as the men and can be fit and strong enough to handle the speed and physical forces in a Formula One car," says Sarah Kavanagh, who has been working her way up the racing ladder since 1991.

"Bernie Ecclestone has said that he would very much like to see me in Formula One," says Sarah who has raced Formula 3000 category cars since 1996 clocking up an impressive results list.

"There's no reason why a woman cannot do it," says multiple world champion Jackie Stewart. "Just imagine the commercial opportunities for a woman in Formula One," said the former boss of the Jaguar Grand Prix team.
