Fast Lady - My Life In Motorsport by Joy Rainey,
This review is from: Fast Lady: My Life in Motorsport (Hardcover)
The life story of a truly inspirational lady. Joy Rainey was born in Australia in the 1950's and the daughter of a 3-time Australian Formula 3 champion. An early taste for speed led her to compete at several UK hill climb venues, including the world famous Shelsley Walsh where she is a former ladies record holder.
This book takes you through her life, from her early childhood, coming to grips with wearing leg irons due to her being a sufferer of restricted growth and through her driving to Perugia at the start of her university days in Italy, to her taking part on the London to Sydney Marathon in 2004 with her late partner Trevor Hulks in a 1970 Morris Minor which they spent the previous year restoring to compete in the event.
A 'must read' for anyone interested in life stories, or have an association with UK hill climbing or motorsport. With a forward from 1980 Formula One champion, Alan Jones MBE and a publishers forward from John Haynes OBE, this book will have you engrossed from cover to cover.
