AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The long-awaited authorised biography of Nat Lowndes, the forthright and popular first wife of Australian V8 motorsport champion, Craig Lowndes. Self-professed bogan, Natalie Lowndes, grew up in suburban Kallangur. Life centred around her brother until a shocking tragedy. Teenaged Nat fled in the night with her horse Blue. What happened next led her into the path of an emerging race car driver. A whirlwind romance, and Nat woke to her photo on the front pages. Jill Johnson took her under her wing in the dust of the scrum surrounding her. As her husband cemented his legendary status on track, Nat's kindness and strength saw her become a fans' favourite. Nat shares stories from behind the scenes when fans were still allowed in the pits. With travels across the globe, Nat became mum to Levi and Chilli. One stretch of road accelerated, the other veered off-course. The author combines tales from a mum, land-owner, horselover, friend, daughter, sister, and a girl from the burbs who was thrust into a world of talent, money and big egos, with tales from the people close to her including Helen Lowndes, Jill Johnson, Bev Brock, Alyson Faulkner, and best friend Flav.'
