"At the first Le Mans Classic I was one of only 6 women out of 1,200 drivers and was on the Motor Sports Association Judicial Panel for five years. I was 50 in July last year.
I have now handed my racing boots to my stepson, Pete Flatt, and son, Tom (his 21st birthday present this summer was his ARDS test, but he has yet to take it because he had a serious shoulder surgery just before his birthday).
"The Aston was my husband's car and we part-exed it for a 1998 Aston V8 Coupe but the Corvette is very much mine, and I swapped a 512 TR Ferrari for it. I used to have a Dino, but traded that for the 512 TR (obviously, a bit of money coming my way in each transaction) but thought that the Corvette would be much less "precious" than the TR and more fun for all the family. I think it is the only right-hand drive one in the world. It was previously owned by Silvio Berlusconi's right-hand man, Alberto Di Luca."
