Harnessing Horsepower Pat Moss Rally Racing Healey Mg 9781845843069 "New"

  • Barcode: 9781845843069
The book covers the life of one of the greatest women rally drivers of all time: Pat Moss Carlsson. Pat had a highly successful show-jumping career before moving into motorsport, going on to become European Ladies Rally Champion no fewer than five times. In 1960, with her co-driver Ann Wisdom, she won the Liege, the toughest rally of all, a win as iconic in motorsport terms as her brother Stirling?s famous one on the Mille Miglia  .Featuring 150 evocative pictures, this is an intimate and unique account of one of motorsport?s most formidable women. Stuart Turner has enjoyed a lifelong involvement in motorsport, both as competitor and team manager.   After becoming British Champion navigator, he went on to manage the BMC Competitions.  He is now the Chief Executive of the Motorsport Safety Fund, which produces safety training material to help the sport. In 2009, Stuart received the Prince Michael Award of Merit, the Motor Sport Association?s most prestigious award for services to British motorsport.   Stuart is uniquely qualified to write a book about Pat Moss Carlsson, because he not only navigated for her on British rallies, but was her team manager at BMC. He also rallied with Pat?s husband, the legendary Erik Carlsson, with whom he won the RAC Rally.
