Growing up in a small coastal town, Kath was always an integral part of the community. Her outgoing personality, bolstered by her initiative constantly saw her seeking new and interesting challenges.

Kath was asked to drive a Rally Car in the Queensland Mud Bash Derby, motorsports. Determined to take up the challenge to the male contingent, she was and victorious in four out of five events.

Kath, now a truck driver by trade, settled in Brisbane where she first met Brett. They met at the racetrack when he signed a poster for her! Today, the pair work side by side in what has turned into a full time operation for the successful race team.

Kath's keen interest in Drag Racing has now taken her to a position where she created a world first, entering what has for a long time been a male dominated sport. Taking aboard all the knowledge and teaching that Brett has to offer, in November 2004 Kath made her debut as the first ever female driver to race in the Top Doorslammer Championship Series.

Officially unveiled at the Western Sydney International Dragway in September 2004, her first Top Doorslammer, a Jack Daniel's sponsored 1963 Split Window Corvette was launched. This was constructed entirely in the Brett Stevens Racing chassis shop. With its sleek new look, Kath and her Corvette certainly brought a change of scenery and competition to the top class of Australian Drag Racing.

After taking a short break in her racing career due to a non racing related motorcycle accident and the birth of her and Brett's first child, Kath is back in the drivers seat taking it up to the guys and bringing a change of scenery and competition to the top class of Australian Drag Racing in her band new Jack Daniel's Racing Falcon Top Doorslammer.
