Hooked after her win at the Barrelsprint ladies day last year, Amy is all set to bring the fight to all the rounds of the impending 2016 series.
Her car is a familiar one, driven formerly by her Fiancé Jake Archer & affectionately nicknamed ‘Doris’, it is now her weapon of choice. No insane engine builds here, just a healthy SR20DET ready to rev, rip & shred the tread taking on the barrels. More than enough to surprise the FBS veterans.
With the support of Eastcote Customs & Viper Motorsport Amy has been able to prep her 200sx S14a for the first event on the 5th of March at Santa Pod Raceway.
We spent some time with Viper Motorsport getting an up close look at some their plans & builds for this year & its clear that Amy is excited as any of the team to get underway & take on the competition properly. Given that she qualified 14th in her 2nd ever attempt at Barrelsprint is hugely promising, the field is tight & times needed to win are getting insanely tough, but we expect big things from Amy!
We are super stoked to see the sport attract more & more ladies this year, we’ve always said it but now its clear the word has got around, FBS is definitely not just for the boys.
