    Really glad finally to read Rosemary Smith s story a motor sport lady who was out there and in the driving seat for so many years Shame she never got a Michele Mouton type break in a top flight car but she could always be relied on to give it her best shot which she never failed to do.Her life story is also interesting and at times traumatic and very honestly recounted so looking at her life overall I d say she was is undoubtedly a gutsy lady The word Driven in the title is singularly appropriate You could pretty much throw Rosemary the keys to any car and she d rise to the challenge I mean, tackling a drive in a modern day Formula 1 Renault at the not inconsiderable age of 80 is not for the faint hearted be you man or woman Yes, there are a multitude of young women pioneering all sorts of things these days but Rosemary, along with several other ladies, was out there doing it way back whenever and doing it extremely well A really enjoyable read.

    When I was a teenager she was a real pin up for me Enjoyed all motorsport but Rosemary really made rallying glamourous wish she had been the driver when the mini cooper was the rally car to have Great to relive those years from the past

    Just had to buy, as a Tiger owner, expecting a poorly told story as autobiographies often are This one held my attention to the very last page.
