PEMBROKESHIRE autograss racer Alice Bevans has steered her way to yet another title.

The 25-year-old has recently returned from Yeovil, where she retained her National Super Saloon title which she won the previous year.

This was the ninth national senior autograss title for Alice, who, when not behind the wheel, is a qualified nurse based in theatre at Withybush Hospital.

She and her sister Michaela Dance have been racing since they were youngsters - following in the tyre-tracks of mum and dad, Mike and Joan, and granddparents Gerald and Shirley Harries, who all took national autograss titles.

Alice's accolades also include four champion of champions titles, plus numerous other British titles.

She went into the eight-car grid final of the Somerset competition as top qualifier after gaining two seconds and a first in the heats. The class was contested by nearly 30 competitors from all parts of Britain and Ireland.

Alice, who races a Mini pick-up with one Hyabusa motorbike engine bored out to 1585cc, got to the first corner in fourth position, but hugged the track markers to come out in first. The first lap saw her overtaken by one of her rivals - who has twin motorbike engines - and with the other six competitors trying to pass her.

With her excellent driving, she passed the first twin bike race car on the second lap to open up a lead and after eight laps, crossed the finishing line in first place.

Alice is a member of the Pembrokeshire Autograss Club (PAC), which is a member of the South Wales Autograss League. Its permanent local race track is near Pendine. From next year, junior autograss racing will start from the age of ten so that even more people can experience this great family sport.
