Friday 16th November 1900
Born on this day, Alzbeta Junkova (aka Elizabeth Junek), one of the greatest female drivers in Grand Prix motor racing history. However with communist rule in Czechoslovakia she was largely forgotten by the motor racing world until recently. She nearly won the 1928 Targa Florio in her Type 35B Bugatti but rocks mysteriously appeared in front of her on the second lap. She died January 5, 1994 at age 93.
