Past Meeting

Gail Hill: Women Drivers: On The Track!!

Gail Hill photo 1 Those of you who have met Gail before knew that this would be another excellent evening. She brought along some colleagues from the British Women Racing Drivers Club (BWRDC) - see profiles below. We were also be joined by members of the British Women Pilots' Association (BWPA) - a real glamorous ladies' night (but with plenty of racing to interest the chaps!)

We listened to tales of thrills and spills illustrated with seriously exciting in-car video.


Gail Hill photo 2 Gail knows a good racing County when she sees one so she lives in Oxfordshire. She says she is an "old bird" who ought to know better and stick to pottering about in the garden, but instead she's now been racing in the XJS Championship for seven years.

Many of you will have read of Gail's racing exploits in the Jaguar magazines, or indeed read her column in Jaguar World Monthly.
