The Queen

Eliška Junková, born in 1900 in the city of Olomouc in what is today known as the Czech Republic, was the first woman ever to win a Grand Prix motor race. She was famously known as the “Queen of the Steering Wheel” as she competed in the 1920s against Europe’s top male drivers, an unconceivable accomplishment at that time.
