RACE car driving has always been in Sarah Walker's blood.
Born into a family where both her father and grandfather lived on the track, it came as no surprise that she would follow in their footsteps.
When she was eight years old, Miss Walker received her first go kart licence and began competing in races.
Now 15 years later, the 23 year old Shailer Park resident is preparing to take the next step in her career on the track.
"This is my last season in go-karts before I will step up into compact race cars," Miss Walker said.
"The compact cars go a little bit faster and have a big 1000cc engine.
"Then hopefully, in another season or two, I can move up to 4/10 sprint cars which have a big V8 engine."
In a sport which is heavily male dominated, Miss Walker is the only female racer in her class.
Each weekend she gets behind the wheel of her car and tears around the track to victory against the boys.
"This last season in go-karts, which ran from June until March, I didn't lose a single race," Miss Walker said.
"I love racing against the boys."
Currently, Miss Walker is ranked second place in the Queensland titles, and often travels all around Australia competing in interstate and national titles.
"I love being out on the track," she said.
"When you get out there nothing else matters.
"You just focus on the job in front of you."
However, before she can realise her dream of racing in a 4/10 sprint car, Miss Walker needs new sponsors to help her purchase her dream car.
Jav Engines in Capalaba where she works currently sponsor her and help pay for her fuel.
