dc.description.abstractAs Roger Munting pointed out in the last BSSH Bulletin, academic historians have written very little on motor racing. In referencing Adrian Smith’s paper ‘Sport, speed and the technological imperative’ Munting located the inter-war period as of special importance for the wider contemporary context and it is a comment that this paper is intended to support. I could not call myself a motor racing enthusiast, even though perplexed that academic sports history has largely overlooked the range of activities that this implies, along with a vast literature, fashion, art and collectibles market. However, it should also be more widely acknowledged that women were part of the turn-of-the-century story.en
