women and car racing

We're publishing a book next spring called Travel Therapy, by Karen Schaler. It's early to be generating excitement about the book, but it's awesome because the whole book is about vacations women can take to cope or celebrate or indulge or escape based on things like breaking up, celebrating a promotion, giving back to the community, etc.

Today I was reading about Breakup trips, and lo and behold, one of the suggested trips is Racecar Driving in Miami. Apparently racecar driving is all the rage and becoming increasingly popular among women! And they're tearing up the frigging track.

This was all very timely reading, since Danica Patrick became auto racing's first female winner in IndyCar history yesterday.

Just in case you want to stick this in your hat for later, here are a couple of the racing schools that Karen recommends:

*Skip Barber Racing School
*Homestead Miami Racing School
