Motor racing fans may have noticed Codnor born and bred Tillie Thompson this weekend.

The 27-year-old grid-girl has been working for the Honda Racing team for seven years. On Saturday and Sunday, she was with the team on the starting grid at Donnington Park Raceway, Leicestershire, for round four, five and six of the British Touring Car season. Tillie was spotted by the Honda team as she walked around the Autosports show at the NEC in Birmingham back in 2004.

The former Mill Hill School pupil said: “All the team gets on so well we all just have a great laugh.”
