Product Description

Review

"BOOK OF THE MONTH. A thoroughly entertaining read. Moss was a remarkable woman and this is a fitting tribute. Highly recommended." - Octane "Stuart is uniquely qualified to write about Pat because he not only navigated for her on British rallies, they took the first win by a Mini together, but was then her team manager at BMC." - BRSCC "There is some cracking content in Stuart Turner's account of Sir Stirling's late sister's life. The first few chapters mainly cover her love of horses, but there are still some great anecdotes about her early days. In fact, by the time Turner even touches on Moss' career on four wheels - starting with a 1936 Morris Ten - most people will already be hooked." - Classic & Sports Car "Stuart Turner's experience as a rallying contemporary of Pat Moss adds colour and depth to this well-informed biography of one of Britain's greatest drivers." - Classic Cars "Author and former BMW team boss Stuart Turner knew Pat well and apologises for not being detached from his subject, but he shouldn't. His insight adds depth to a wonderful story, told with humour. Worth every penny." - MotorSport

About the Author

Stuart Turner has enjoyed a lifelong involvement in motorsport, both as competitor and team manager. After becoming British Champion navigator, he went on to manage the BMC Competitions Department when Mini Coopers were winning Monte Carlo rallies, and later Ford Motorsport when the Escort reigned supreme in rallies. He is now the Chief Executive of the Motorsport Safety Fund, which produces safety training material to help the sport. In 2009, Stuart received the Prince Michael Award of Merit, the Motor Sport Association's most prestigious award for services to British motorsport. Stuart is uniquely qualified to write a book about Pat Moss Carlsson, because he not only navigated for her on British rallies, but was then her team manager at BMC. He also rallied with Pat s husband, the legendary Erik Carlsson, with whom he won the RAC Rally.

I know i am very biased as this book is about my Mum,but it is a very interesting read of an truly enjoyed life that she had!Mum was a pioneer,who set new rules,over the long years of women not being competitive.They broke the mould when she was born and long may her life inspire and encourage women to 'have a Bloody good go!',and enjoy life.

Interesting story of Pat Moss, shouw-jumper turned rally-driver with great success.
She did on the road what brother Stirling did on the track.
Obviously some Moss DNA there...
