Eliška Junková raced around in her Bugattis for a mere five years (1923-1928), yet is still regarded as the most famous lady racing-driver of all time. The four-part television series, an international co-production, tells her glorious story. It tells of a woman who started out racing in the shadow of her husband, but soon swapped roles with him. It is also about the world of automobile racers back in those times when it wasn’t the money that won, but passion: about powerful motors, but also about the people who dared to take the wheel of the most powerful machines of their time. The series will be a treat for lovers of vintage cars, especially the Bugatti brand.
Screenplay by Pavel Kosatík and Zuzana Vojtíšková.
