From her start in 100cc karts at the age of 12 there have been many highlights; including being lapped by a much more experienced David Coulthard in her first kart race - wonder what ever happened to him... She's also raced a Porsche 911 in the Carrera Cup and a Renault Clio in the Clio Cup. Vicki became the first woman to win a Maserati race in the history of the marque, in the Maserati Trofeo support race at the British F1 GP. And, in October 2009, she fulfilled the dream of racing a Ferrari: a F430 Challenge car with 4.3-litre V8 engine, and in the two 25-minute races at Brands Hatch, she finished 2nd and 3rd in Class. Vicki has been presenter of Fifth Gear for 10 years. Previously she presented Top Gear and regularly writes for the Sunday Times In Gear motoring section, and has a monthly column in Country and Town House magazine, 'Diary of a Car Girl'.
