Hi, my name is Naomi and I am a racing driver from South Australia. Trophy Class winner in the 2012 Australian Saloon Car Series. I have been racing Holden Commodore Saloon Cars/Super Six Touring Cars since 2006. Thanks to Frank Walsh Drilling for their ongoing support. I hope you enjoy reading my race reports and updates.

What a year...

Well, it's been... interesting so far.

My car was destroyed in a crash in the final race of round 1 of the SA championship at Mallala. The old Saloon Car was like a member of the family so it was very sad seeing it stripped & crushed afterwards. There were tears :o(

We have recently finished the new car, and the aches & pains have nearly gone away. We already had a spare VN shell, but had to fork out for a roll cage, new seat, harness, etc which certainly added up. Fortunately the engine and gearbox were ok to go into the new car.

I raced at round 2 of the SA championship in June and then headed over to Winton for the Shannons Nationals where I came 2nd in Trophy Class. I set a new personal best of 1:22.1 first time out at Mallala so I'm pretty happy with that. We have learnt a lot in the 6 years since building the old car, so we did the new one a bit differently and it will be a rocket with some minor fine tuning.

Cheers
Naomi :o)
