A keen sportswoman, she is never one to be found sitting on the sofa with her feet up.

A passion for cars or racing is not needed as a reason to buy this book. It isn't really about that. As an account of the triumph of human will over adversity this book is top drawer. It is an inspirational guide book for anyone who ever thinks life is too hard or grinding them down. What this team achieved is phenomenal, succeeding where 'able bodied' teams failed, without winning they emerged victorious by virtue of achieving what others thought impossible.
Concise text, great photo's and a donation to a very worthy charity. Just buy a copy, go on you know you want to. While you are at it buy a copy or two for your friends as well.
