Drag Racing: Through the Eyes of a Woman
This is my innocent and humorous recollection of the disasters and successes I have encountered in the male dominated sport of Drag Racing, when it was in it's infancy, back in the 1970's in the UK. I became only the second woman in the UK to race a Top Fuel dragster. How I survived a 200mph crash and came back to win the European Championship two years in a row. Yes, I beat the men at their own game!
