Sarah races her way to top British title.

Byline: Gregg Evans

RACE ace Sarah Reader has topped off a fine season by establishing herself as Britain's top female racing driver.

The 29-year-old was handed the British Women Racing Drivers Club's top gong at a recent awards ceremony at Silverstone, putting her in pole position for the coming season. The Embassy Trophy, making Sarah the BWRDC's overall champion of 2011, was presented to her on the back of a stunning 2011 season in the SPEED Euroseries - an international championship where she was the only woman on the grid.

And it wasn't the only trophy Sarah, from Loxley, just outside Stratford, picked up - an incredible four more followed.

Four podium finishes and fourth place overall saw her clock up more points than any other British female competing in circuit championships last year, winning her the BWRDC's second highest honour, the Goodwin Trophy.

She also won the club's Jamieson Trophy for 2011 for notching up the fastest average speed, the VIP Adrenalin Cup for best performance in a sports racing car and the prestigious GoldStars Award, which marked her continued success in international motor racing.

"These awards are an incredible way to get set for the coming season," she said.

"I'm honoured to be a member of the BWRDC and honoured to be recognised in this way.

"I look forward to even more success in 2012."
