Fast Lady: My Life in Motorsport by Joy Rainey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Here is the inspirational life story of a woman who has proved that size doesn't matter in the world of motorsport. Joy Rainey, a person of restricted growth, has competed her E-type Jaguar in circuit races, hurtled round hill climbs in single-seaters, driven the London to Brighton veteran car run - and in 2004 plans to tackle the London to Sydney Rally in an old Morris Minor. A personality of giant stature, she demonstrates what can be achieved, given innate talent, determination and charm.
