A father and daughter duo hit top gear at the Silverstone Birkett 6-Hour Relay Race on Saturday.

David Butler and daughter Natalie Harris took to the track as part of the Smarts4youracing Team and achieved a long held ambition of racing together.

David started the race, with Natalie taking over after the first hour. On a drying track, she proceeded to lap much faster than her dad who was proudly watching and signalling from the pit wall.

Natalie clocked a time of just under an hour as the team brought her in to the pits after the safety car was released due to an accident

The other four Smart Car drivers in the team then went on to finish 28th out of the 69 teams that completed the race.
