Aug 13th, 2017: Rosemary Smith Can Drive Better Than You

It’s twue, it’s twue, Rosemary Smith can drive better than you, and she’s 79 years old.
Last month she was invited to take one of Renault’s 800 hp Formula One cars for a spin around Circuit Paul Ricard, home of
the French Grand Prix. Doing that she became the oldest person ever to drive a Formula One car.


Rosemary was different from the beginning. "I was tall for my age and blonde," she says. "My other siblings were smaller and darker. People used to say my mother had been playing away from home when she conceived me," she quips.
Rosemary went to a Loreto day school, and though she loved geography, art and sport, she hated formal education. "I was a wild child and so they threw me out," she says. Wisely, Mr and Mrs Smith saw the virtue in harnessing their daughter's creative talents, and enrolled her in the Grafton Academy of Fashion, where she promptly won top honours.
Soon after, Rosemary - who is still very fashion-conscious - opened a dress shop. One day, one of the clients invited Rosemary to navigate for her in a rally. However, it transpired that Rosemary was the better driver. So they agreed Rosemary would navigate for the first couple of miles; they would then swap places, with Rosemary driving. Shortly before the end of the race, they would again change places. "This went on for years," says Rosemary, "and we kept on winning."
Win she did, turning into one of the world’s best rally drivers

She started a driving school backed by Ford, looks like now backed by Renault, particularly for kids starting out to teach them the
right way from the start.(British, right way )

She has had an amazingly successful career in racing, and fascinating life.



Everything is interesting... look closer.
