Fay Taylour, UK pioneer midget car driver 1934, raced in South Africa 1939, post-war circa late 1940s/early 1950s in USA, New Zealand and Australia. The two photos are from the post-war era but where and what they represent is unknown. Fay Taylour was also a speedway rider 1928-31.

Fay Taylour was a race winner at the UK's first attempt to stage a speedway meeting at Camberley, Surrey, in the summer of 1927. She was also a regular midget car driver at the first UK season in 1934 appearing frequently at Crystal Palace.
The top photo has the car sponsored by GOLDEN FLEECE, an australian firm with a long association with speedway. The lower photo may be from her time in New Zealand. I have seen a similar shot with a well known kiwi driver of the time posing with Fay.I'll see if i can track it down.
