Jacqui Smith 1966

Jacqui Smith

Jacqui Smith, at 22: "I always wanted to race - even before I knew how to drive. It's the fullfilment of all I've dreamed of. [...] My ambition is to race every weekend - and to paint."

Alan Fraser, chief of Fraser Imps, spotted her and signed her up for the Rootes Group's 1966 racing team.

Score card up to June 1966:

One crash: "It was in February 1964. We shot through a hedge and landed upside-down in a field - the result of a skid on a wet fram-crossing."

Other facts:

For relaxation she paints pictures of race drivers and cars - and has sold some.
