Motor sports TV presenter Suzi Perry travels to Northern Ireland to meet three women who compete in the exhilarating yet highly dangerous sport of motorcycle road racing.
Suzi Perry is no stranger to the adrenaline-fuelled world of motor sport. For many years she has been a familiar face at the glamorous and international race circuits of Formula One and Moto GP.
There is, however, one form of motor sport that Suzi has never encountered – the exhilarating yet highly dangerous world of motorcycle road racing. Until now.
In Queens of the Road, Suzi travels to the Cookstown 100 road race in Northern Ireland to meet three extraordinary women who compete in this male-dominated sport. It is an experience that both thrills and astonishes her.
Motorcycle road racing is hugely popular in Northern Ireland. It is a sport in which riders compete at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour, not on purpose built tracks but on narrow country roads that on any other day are used by normal traffic and are lined with hedges, walls and trees.
