    interesting approach...
    It kind of reeks desperation to me, but I guess to get a foot in the door with motorsport you either have to be loaded, know someone who is loaded, or do favours hmmm.... for someone who is loaded. Alternatively, if you are chick with a decent body, you pose on a gumtree ad with your car and get guys to throw money at you

    Good luck to her I suppose. I can imagine a lot of other females are going to hate her for it, but sometimes you have to use whatever you've got to achieve your dreams

    Driftkat is pretty cool. She was staying at the same F1 Hotel we were at for WTAC last year. We got to have a good conversation with her after the event with her steering rack problems, she seemed really nice and down to earth.

    Oh yeah, this. The last message I got was basically "oh sorry, I have bene flat out with work and overtime, send me your email address and I'll forward some videos of my Skyline in action, along with photos".

    lel. If you don't have the knowledge to Google Joel Zimmerman, and know he's actually a highly successful (and international) DJ, as well as sending a random google-images pic from "Deadmau5", then you're not taking your sponsorship request seriously. You're just far too hopefull.

    Not bad eye-candy though.

    Chicks are only ok at drags and drift, it says a lot about the skill level of those sports doesn't it? How many female F1 champions? V8 champions (Leanne Ferrier was kind of ok til she became a baby factory and threw it away), Nascar champions, WRC champs? not one?

    I'm not being sexiest, it's just a cold hard fact of nature and the stats speak for themselves.

    F1 etc are a much harder sport to break into, you need A LOT of up front cash, you need to work your way through the field etc Whereas things like drifting, it can be quite cheap and easy to break into if youre into that scene.

    I do believe its the popularity of drift with the younger generation thats why there a few females. The Force girls and most drag racers are generally part of a family based operation/team.

    according to Google

    Pfft she goes worse than alright. The indy guys refer to her as a mobile road block.
    Anyway, it was this woman that inspired me into motor racing, so there are 1 or 2 exceptions to the rule :)
