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.

Itier, Madames Rouault and Roux, Helle Nice, these are some of the other “girls”, who competed on the Sarthe.
