Wendy Sprules is seeking to fulfil her racing
ambitions this autumn as she challenges for a seat
in the Formula Woman racing series. Wendy, 36, from
Guildford, narrowly missed out on the final stages
of the women-only competition last year, but is
determined to make the grade this time around.
She has no shortage of inspiration as she works
almost side-by-side with a state-of-the-art Formula
1 racing car at the headquarters of Toyota GB PLC
at Great Burgh, near Epsom. The sleek machine is
parked in the atrium of the company offices, where
Wendy is a senior analyst in the IT department.
Away from work, Wendy takes every chance she can
to get behind the wheel, putting in fast laps at
track days at Brands Hatch, Bedford and, closer to
home, at Dunsfold, where Formula Woman is
"I enjoy working for Toyota and the fact it is a
company thats involved in Formula 1 racing
makes it even more special. Im looking
forward to the opportunity of showing that speed
and racing skills are not the preserve of men,"
