Car company Renault launches a new short documentary featuring 79 year-old rally driver, Rosemary Smith, who continues to follow her life-long passion for driving fast.

Fabulous short documentary portraying the feisty and inspiring Rosemary Smith. Rosemary initially trained as a seamstress and opened her own dress shop, which unexpectedly became her route into the world of motorsport when one of her clients invited her to navigate in a rally. However, it wasn’t long before the excitement of driving took over. Back then it was unheard of that a woman would enter that world but with her guts and determination she took the world of rallying by storm in the '60s and '70s. Rosemary is now 79 years old, and her passion for life is still driving fast. Enjoy the film below, and read the full interview with Renault here
