You only hear this kind of stories in the movies so get ready to be wowed with how everything began between this two athletes! A true love story that seems more like it was snatched from “Days of Thunder” type thing!
It was March 2006 when when a mutual friend asked Davies to take Dixon out for the evening. In one hand you have rising motor racer star and on the other you have Davies, who at the time was 29 years old also a successful athlete-that was just going through devastating moments. Only six months before they magical meeting, her 47-year-old father and former coach had died from bowel cancer and Davies says his death ended her competitive career.
She might have dated singer Craig David; but I’m telling you it was just destiny for this two; he rekindled her passion for the race track and she help to train him to Indy 500 glory. The moment they met, sparkles flew, an instant chemistry got them inseparable! Emma recalls
“We were smitten after the second day,”
“It got serious very quickly.”
Long story short they were married in February 2008. Former Welsh and British 800m champion, Davies, reached the semifinals at the Kuala Lumpur and Manchester. And has dedicated her time to helping her man into fitness, as she believes his fitness has helped him on the track:
“People don’t realize it, but to be in the car for the 500, which is a grueling three-hour race, you have to be fit mentally and physically…”
In 2008 Emma’s hubby Scott Dixon won the prestigious 92 Indy 500 on Sunday, May 25. This was his biggest victory since he married Emma. Bottom line Emma and Scott found each other in a critical time just to save one another! The couple was completed when they became parents! They have two beautiful little girls. First it was Poppy Davies Dixon, born on 5 July 2009 and second daughter named Tilly was born 10 Sept 2011.
