Car Racing: Al gets a girl racer.

SCOTLAND'S Allan McNish will be partnered by a woman in this weekend's prestigious Daytona 24-hour sports car race in Florida.

McNish is to team up with 23-year-old Indy Racing League star Danica Patrick. It will be the first time he has shared a car with a female and he's hoping she can help change his luck in the event.

The Scot, second in 1998 and 1999, said: "Danica showed by leading the Indy 500 last year that she is very accomplished and talented. She could be the lucky charm I've been missing."

Scots Dario and Marino Franchitti and Robin Liddell will also compete.
