Sarah Playfair ended up with Motorsport News "Drive of the Day" at her local circuit, Knockhill, on 15/16 May 2004 - she "drove with passion and fought hard in the Scottish Formula Ford Zetec encounter" and claimed fourth place in her Mygale SJ01. Sarah drove the Taylor Motorsport machine into tenth place overall in the second of the Knockhill UK Formula Ford Championship rounds too.

Sarah Moves Up (4/23-24/05)
The UK Formula Ford Championship, moved on from Donnington in early April, to Oulton Park for the weekend of April 23rd/24th. For Sarah Playfair this was a chance to improve on her two third places in the Scholarship class, with a view to taking that top step and staying there. Prior to Oulton, Sarah returned to her local circuit of Knockhill, for a round of the Scottish Championship. Driving the Ray 03 in practise she recorded her quickest ever lap of the circuit recording joint fastest time. Things were looking good. Unfortunately, come the race, she was unable to equal the time, due to a bad set of tyres, which they only discovered after the event, but a 4th and 6th place still represented a good result. At Oulton things got a lot better where Sarah recorded two second place finishes in the Scholarship class, together with a fastest lap in the second race put her into the lead of the championship. Sarah was a little disappointed as an off whilst trying to overtake, denied her an early chance to stand on that top step. On the weekend of May 13th/14th, the UK series returns to Knockhill, where Sarah will be looking to take two more podium places to retain her scholarship lead.
