Florence Walker has the enviable task of working for Jeremy Clarkson and is based in the UK. Although her father taught her how to drive when she was 9 she didn’t get behind a wheel again until she was 21. A trip to watch the Monaco Grand Prix in 2016 changed her life. Moments of note for her so far in her thus far extremely brief career include being taught to drive an e-type on ice by World Rally Champion Stig Blomqvist, Jeremy Clarkson remembering her name, taking a corner in the Mojave desert in the 308 at 120 mph and being let off a speeding ticket in Arizona because of her accent. If opportunities to race cars dry up she’s got a fall back career in Epidemiology which she intends to study when she decides to take life seriously.
