Nothing standard about Roycroft

Motor racing competitor Felicity Roycroft enjoyed a solid performance at the National Street Stock Titles last week.

Felicity Roycroft’s need for speed is only intensifying after a strong showing at the National Street Stock Titles last week.

In her second season of racing, Roycroft produced solid results in her four heats, second, fifth, sixth and sixth, qualifying for the C main final.

Here she finished 13th — not bad for a second season rookie.

‘‘It was my first national titles racing and just amazing with 122 cars there,’’ Roycroft said.

‘‘It was quite surreal, I went there with the goal to make the finals, but to actually do it was amazing.

‘‘The racing was completely different to what I’ve done in the past, in the main finals only three finished just because of the wear and tear on the cars.’’

Qualifying 43rd overall was some achievement, as was being the highest qualifying woman in the field.

‘‘I started fourth in my first heat and was able to finish second — my first-ever podium at the nationals,’’ she said.

‘‘I qualified to the final, and 75 cars didn’t.

‘‘I was the top qualifying lady as well and most of the other ladies had raced for six or seven seasons, so it was really good.’’

Thrilled just to have made the finals, Roycroft returned to race at Rushworth at the weekend, bouncing back from a poor qualifying to blitz through the field and finish second.

And there’s plenty left to come from the speedster, revealing she was being offered the opportunities to drive events across the country.
