Jean-François Bouzanquet lived in a family where automobile was spelled with a capital A. A lifelong collector and racing driver in historic competitions, he had the good fortune to rub shoulders with such "goldmines of memory" as Jaques Potherat, Marc Nicolosi, Jean-Louis Moncet and Johnny Rives, who were to inspire in him a love of history.

"I really enjoyed this large format book which is good value even at a cover price. if only for the wonderful 'period' photographs which abound. Buy the book and enjoy it, but if you leave it on the coffee table chain it down or it may disappear with your guests." – The Motor Cycling Club
"For the female and male racing enthusiasts, this book is a must for reference as well as the coffee table. The pictures are just stunning." – Chester Standard

"Bouzanquet interweaves into his straightforward history, narrative descriptions of a number of important races as well as identifying countless less known and diverse events that verify women’s uninterrupted interest in motorsports. Bouzanquet, in other words, demonstrates a high regard for “toutes les femmes” to whom he dedicates this book." – velocetoday.com
