MOVE over Penelope Pitstop, there's a new lady racing driver on the scene in the form of 10-year-old Abbie Viveash.

Abbie, from Sandy, was on a shopping trip to Letchworth GC when she won a Gates Ford junior rally experience.

She will now enjoy a full day's training in a powerful Rally Ka at the famous Silverstone racing circuit.

Abbie, who is a pupil at St Christopher School in Letchworth GC, has a passion for pink Kas.

She said: "Mum and I have a special game where we spot pink cars so I'm really excited that this time it's going to be me behind the wheel."

Abbie is pictured with the keys to her favourite pink Street Ka
