Brains Are Better Than Brawn
Targa Florio, Italy / 6 May 1928
Eliska’s male counterparts didn’t think she was physically strong enough to be taken as a serious competitor. What they didn’t count on, however, was that what she was missing in muscles, she more than made up for with brains. Before the race she walked the entire 108 kilometer (67 mile) course and mapped out every detail. This intelligence helped her gain
the lead position during the second lap of the race. She ended up placing fifth, due to engine trouble, but still beat 25 other world-class male drivers to the finishing line.
Madame Junek unfortunately left the world of racing after her husband was tragically killed on the Nürburgring during the 1928 German Grand Prix only two months later.
