Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Giovanna Amati is a former professional race car driver from Italy. She is best known as the last female driver to have entered the Formula One World Championship. Born to wealthy parents, Amati had a colourful childhood, including being kidnapped for ransom, and buying a Honda motorcycle when she was 15, managing to hide it from her parents for two years. She began racing professionally in 1981, winning several times over the next four years in Formula Abarth before moving up to Italian Formula Three in 1985-86, again scoring a few wins. By 1987 she had moved up to Formula 3000, but by 1992 had recorded a best result of only 7th place in six seasons in both Europe and Japan.show more
