Divina Galica took pole in her 'home' round of the Women's Global GT championship.

Galica takes Women's Global GT pole

The Sebring based driver took her Panoz Esperante around the Florida track at an average of 87.175mph to start top for the inaugural race of the season.

Nudged into second was German driver Sonja Bayer, who posted a time 0.25 seconds behind.

Bayer is taking part in only her second WGGT event, after finishing third in her first at Laguna Seca.

"The competition is much stronger now," Galica said. "Last year, there were maybe five drivers who were fast.

"Now, there's not much difference between first and 10th.

She added: "The key to the race is not making mistakes - and I don't plan on making mistakes."

The fourteen identical Panoz GT cars will all start today's 45 minute race.

The one-time Schumacher rival rebooting his career Down Under

Joey Mawson made waves in the middle of the last decade, beating future Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher - among other highly-rated talents - to the 2016 German F4 title. A run in F1's feeder GP3 category only caused his career to stall, but now back in Australia Mawson's S5000 title success has set that to rights
