April 2006 - Back in the Game!

After a less than perfect start to the season in missing the first round of the NSW state championships at Wakefield Park, Lasts and Lasts have their sights set on the next round of the championships in just 3 short weeks.

Eastern Creek is home to round 2 and is also the site of the accident in round 2 of the 2005 championships that took Lasts and Lasts out for the rest of the season. Whilist some may view this as an omen, Lasts and Lasts are looking forward to making up for past wrongs.

But they aren't coming un-prepared. Testing and practice are on the books, as well as some much needed adjustments to the little blue elfin. What Lasts and Lasts hopes to bring to the 2006 is a more competitive package with the ability to furfill all of that latent potential that the team has been suffering with over the last 2 seasons.

The gearbox problem that held them out of the first round has been well and truly delt with and the car is now back together and complete, ready for the first oppertunity to go testing and get some impressive times out!

Though a newbie to actually driving a racecar, Kirsty has spent most of her life watching, talking about and wishing she were a part of racing...

For a good part of her life she has idolised female race drivers such as Sue Ransom, Leanne Ferrier, Sarah Fisher and Danica Patrick. Today, she has made the step out of the grandstand and into pit lane.
