Girls Get Together For Enduro

  28 November 2012

Isabella Thomas will team up with her childhood hero, Samantha Reid, for the end-of-year enduro at Todd Road.

Samantha, who is a signed V8supercars driver with Kelly Racing, will return to karts after an eight year break, to team up with Bella.

A recent test day saw Sam take no time at all to get back in the groove of karting as she lapped the Todd Road circuit.

The girls will have to carry a significant amount of weight on the kart and plan to play the consistancy game which should reap rewards towards the end of the race.

"I have wanted to race this meeting since it first started" Bella said.

"It didnt run last year, so I just hope it gets the numbers required for this year. Driving with Sam is a dream come true. I guess it's a bit like being a footy fan and having someone like Buddy Franklin say 'come and have a kick'. "

The girls would like to thank Pro Karting and Kelly Brothers Racing.
