Fay Taylour : a dangerous woman in sport and politics

By Stephen Michael Cullen

Abstract

Frances Helen ‘Fay’ Taylour was the most successful woman motor cycle and car racing competitor ever. She excelled in a variety of motor cycle sports—hill climbing, scrambling and, most notably, in speedway, or ‘dirt’ racing. Her successes led her to be repeatedly banned from racing against men. In her political life too, she was banned, being interned without trial for three years during the Second World War as a danger to British national security. This is the first academic article to examine the sporting and political life of this very ‘dangerous woman’
