This coffee-table book presents more than 40 portraits of women who competed in speed-record events, rallies and Grand Prix races, shedding new light on an often-overlooked aspect of the history of motor racing. Organized chronologically, with brief introductions to each era, the profiles are full of character and detail, and are accompanied by hundreds of archive photos including publicity stills, car close-ups, track-side shots, logbooks, programmes and pictures of drivers with their hair down, sometimes literally.
