Denise McCluggage 1927-2015

Ferrari, Denise McCluggage, SebringOur dear friend Denise McCluggage has passed away at the age of 88 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Here she is in her last of a number of races at Sebring in a Ferrari 275GTS/4. Known for her polka dot decorated helmet, Denise had a successful career in international racing during years when women drivers were a true rarity at any level.

In recent years Denise was a widely-published racing journalist who always had time for an up and coming racer and attended many motor sports events around the world. We will all miss her very, very much.
