Review

"A veritable sage with a wealth of illustrations spanning almost a century of motor racing. here are forty unique portraits of daring, brave women who took part in speed record events, rallies and Grand Prix races." - Startline-"Most impressive is the picture research, which shows lesbian racer and Nazi spy Violette Morris at home and the first shot I've seen of Bob Cowell after he became Roberta ..." - Motor Sport-"I really enjoyed this large format book which is good value even at a cover price. if only for the wonderful 'period' photographs which abound. Buy the book and enjoy it, but if you leave it on the coffee table chain it down or it may disappear with your guests." - The Motor Cycling Club-"For the female and male racing enthusiasts, this book is a must for reference as well as the coffee table. The pictures are just stunning." - Chester Standard

About the Author

Jean-Francois Bouzanquet lived in a family where automobile was spelled with a capital A. A lifelong collector and racing driver in historic competitions, he had the good fortune to rub shoulders with such "goldmines of memory" as Jaques Potherat, Marc Nicolosi, Jean-Louis Moncet and Johnny Rives, who were to inspire in him a love of history.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT GOOD 20 July 2010
A Kid's Review
I am a retired American living in Poland. I have American credit cards and a US Amazon account! With this ALL Amazon will not ship directly to me! OH IT WILL TAKE MY MONEY!!! But items must be shipped to a friend in the US or UK and then to me......... this results in extra needless charges.

I must always think twice about buying on Amazon!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind book 7 Feb 2010
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com

One of a kind book on female race drivers. Great photos and text. A little pricey for the number of pages and could use more American drivers as there were quite a few from the era written about.Overall the ONLY book like it I know about.
