WAL­LACH LEADS THE WAY

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

The Women’s In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor­cy­cle As­so­ci­a­tion chose MCN as its of­fi­cial me­dia part­ner. In a let­ter to MCN read­ers, Theresa Wal­lach ad­dressed UK mem­bers. Wal­lach was a racer, ad­ven­turer and all-round pioneer, rid­ing a side­car to South Africa in 1935 when roads barely ex­isted. She went on to win the BMRC’S cov­eted Gold Star in 1939 for lap­ping Brook­lands cir­cuit at over 100mph – on a 350 Nor­ton. Wal­lach never owned a car and was still rid­ing at 88. Sadly she died at 90 in 1999.
