Oh, my dear Sir, to quote G.B.S., your report on Le Mans 24 Hours.
Christine Beckers is most certainly Not the second woman ever to take part at Le Mans:
1934. Kay Petre and Dorothy Chapney, Riley.
1933. Elsie (Bill) Wisdom and M. Morris-Goodall, Aston Martin.
1937. Dorothy Stanley Turner and Enid Riddell, MG P-B.
In 1935, George Eyston entered a team of three MGs with all-female crews, namely Mesdames Margaret Allan, Colleen Eaton, Joan Richmond, Barbara Skinner, Doreen Evans and Mrs. Simpson. Gwenda Hawkes drove a Derby, the same year. Madame Odette Eiko (the first woman to compete there), Madame Mareuse, Mlle. Itier, Madames Rouault and Roux, Helle Nice, these are some of the other “girls”, who competed on the Sarthe.
