a very distant memory!
27 July 2008 | by a73ukSee all my reviews

I was 11 years old when this was shown & therefore I remember very little about it.

From what I do remember there were 2 women (I'm assuming they were Rosemary Martin & Anne Carroll) fighting to win in the male dominated world of motor racing using Austin Mini track racing cars.

I'm pretty sure Gavin Richards was the team boss and / or mechanic.

As a kid into cars I had to watch it, but 24 years on , I cant remember any more of the plot or how it ended!

I think it was shown around 9pm on Sunday nights & as far as I know it hasn't been repeated since.
