Back on the road at last! The chassis curled with the weight of the girls in me funky Ford Cortina. Ok there are no girls yet, but surely it’s only a matter ...

Nicole Drought competed in the Fiesta Endurance Race at Mondello Park last weekend, teaming up with Sean Doyle Racing and Colin Lewis to form Team #DigitalGasoline. Having run well inside the top ten early on, the team encountered a succession of technical issues- with the little Fiesta finally crying enough with just 5 minutes of the 6 Hour race to run! Great fun was had though and the team will be back at the event in 2018! Images with thanks to Michael Chester.

John Jomo StauntonMake no mistake, that's a tough race, 6 hr in a little Fiesta. I seen you times later on, and even down the field, still putting in good laptimes, still fighting. Tough day, but well done.

Nicole Drought Racing is at Kirkistown Circuit.

Nicole Drought- Gem Oils/IT Monkey Stryker 1.8 Zetec. Kirkisto...
Nicole made her Irish Strykers debut at the weekend at Kirkistown Circuit. Here is some coverage from race two! The heavens opened as the cars were leaving assembly and conditions, as you can see, were pretty bad. Nicole managed to climb to fourth before a spin dropped her back, but she recovered to sixth by the chequered flag, and her fastest lap was only bettered by two of the top three finishers!
Thanks to all of the Stryker class organisers and of course Gem Oils, I.T. Monkey and Bernies SuperValu Roscrea!

Nicole Drought Racing updated their cover photo.

Nicole made her Irish Strykers debut at Kirkistown Circuit in Northern Ireland yesterday. In the second race, run in atrocious conditions, she charged up to fourth before a spin dropped her to the back. Undeterred, she climbed back to sixth by the flag, with her lap time only beaten by 2 of the top 3!
