INSPIRATIONAL participant Dani Hill is the nation’s premier reinswoman.
Thanks to her domination of tonight’s Australian Female Drivers’ Championship in Tasmania, Hill has claimed the inaugural title.
Representing South Australia, Hill won five of the nine heats, while also finishing with a half-head second and a third.
Hill earned 130 points to score from Queensland’s Dannielle McMullen on 77 points and Victoria’s Kate Gath with 71 points.
Along with the title of Australian Champion, Hill collected a $5000 winner’s cheque.
Understandably thrilled with the result, Hill was also humble in victory as she thanked her counterparts for taking time to compete in the series.
“I’m rapt,” Hill declared. “I had a very good book of drives and was lucky enough to make the most of them.
“Tonight the draws and luck went my way, which made a big difference.
“Just to be a part of this series with so many wonderful, talented and strong women is something I will always treasure.”
It’s not the first time Hill has captured a Championship on behalf of her home state.
In the 2009 she annexed the Australasian Young Drivers’ Championship at Albion Park.
Hill also wore the state colours during the 2015 Australian Drivers’ Championship – which also conducted on the Apple Isle – finishing second behind Queensland’s Grant Dixon.
“I’ve had a wonderful time in Tassie,” Hill said. “Tasracing has put on a great show and I look forward to being back again for next year’s series.”
