It's that time of the year when meanest, fastest and most ferocious super stock drivers from around the world meet up to settle it on the track for the International Teams Champs. And this year, for the first time, there's a woman driving for the Manawatū Mustangs.

22-year-old Rebecca Barr has been racing since she was 12, and now she's at the top of her game as she makes history for the full contact sport.
