A thrill-seeking racer has been nominated for one of the top awards for women in British motorsport for the second year in a row.

Rockingham Speedway’s head of operations Cat Lund has been nominated for the British Women Racing Drivers’ Club GoldStars Club Award after another championship-winning season as a rally co-driver.

By day Miss Lund, 40, keeps the Corby circuit’s business operations ticking over, and in her spare time she is co-driver to Andy Rowe in a white-knuckle rally championship in Flanders.

Miss Lund won the award last year, following her double rally championship-winning 2010 season.

And she will again be lining up among some of the fastest women in UK motorsport at the Autosport International Show at the NEC in Birmingham on Friday.

Along with Mr Rowe, Miss Lund won the Flanders International Rally Challenge for the second time in 2011, and the duo will be contesting the title again in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo III this year, starting in Oostrozebeke, West Flanders, in May.

Miss Lund, who joined Rockingham in 2007, said: “Winning the award last year was a real surprise and it was extremely gratifying to see rallying recognised in this way.

“It would be fantastic to win for a second time, especially in such an important year for the racing drivers club, but there are some other extremely deserving members nominated for the award so I do not expect to win.”
