PHOTOS | HELEANA GENAUS
I met Jacqui at Track Day Club and couldn’t not photograph her to tell her story. Wife to experienced racer, her nimble Mitsubishi FTO owned the track as she clipped in and got serious on her corners. I loved seeing her back in the pits getting advice from her husband with her daughters in situ in full support and clearly proud of their mum.
Heleana is a force of nature. The founder of In Venus Veritas and The Petrolette, and a co-founder of Rising Sun Workshop. Heleana shares her love of vintage cars, riding motorcycles, and (not-so-secretly) dreams of flying planes and piloting a riva aquariva (a la Sophia Loren) very fast through the canals of Venice. Supportive and connected, community is her lifeblood, and she is as real as they come.
