I am currently researching a biography of Frances “Fay” Taylour (1904-1983), who was born in Ireland and educated at Alexandra College, Dublin. Fay was a speedway rider and later a racing driver, who raced with great success in Ireland, England and abroad.
She won the first Leinster Trophy Road Race in 1934, and returned to Ireland after the war, where she lived for a number of years before moving to America to race and sell cars to the stars in Hollywood. She was involved in radical politics for much of her life, and died in England.
I would be very grateful for any memories readers may have of Fay Taylour. I can be contacted at 33 Shuttleworth Road, Preston, PR1 6DB Lancashire, UK or telephoned on 01772 881105.
