Sara Williams' 2011 Rally Season Kicks-Off With a Great Result

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2011) -

Editors Note: There is a photo included with this release.

Klarius Group sponsored rising star Sara Williams has been awarded the Bob Brain Memorial Trophy as the 'Highest placed lady driver', having finished a fantastic 21st overall at this year's first major rally of the season, the Wyedean.

Competing against over 180 entrants Sara went on to improve her position throughout the day, her characteristic fast, but smooth and composed style keeping the position safe and the car intact.

Sara's comment, 'My time was 47:34 for the event which I'm pleased with; it shows that I am competitive, but also gives me room for improvement. It was a tough race, but the conditions were good this weekend and the car held up well, bearing in mind we had two blown turbos in the penultimate race of last season, which robbed us of a possible win. It is great to have a high profile sponsor such as Klarius QH and I'm pleased to say the components held up well!'

Annette Forster, Group Marketing Director, 'This is a great start to the season for Sara; bearing in mind she is driving a class N4 against faster WRC cars. We are really pleased with the result and the reliability of the car, we are also hoping for good results in the next few events which include some local events where Sara's experience might give her an advantage.'

'Klarius as an organisation is focussed on quality and has consistently won business and market share by improving communication, service and support, in order to do this we have challenged conventions and are working hard to do things differently.'

Sara is a great example of someone who is also challenging motor racing conventions, and demonstrating to the automotive aftermarket and consumers alike how our components can survive and perform in this harsh motorsport environment.
