Description

Whether it’s Formula One, NASCAR, rallying, or karting, this highly illustrated primer, written by motorsport journalist Tim Miller, explains the exciting international world of auto racing.

Full of action photos and explanations of the technical and safety aspects of cars and tracks, this book puts young readers behind the wheel of almost every machine that has been adapted for racing — from go-karts and stock cars to dragsters and Formula-One cars.

Fascinating factoids and trivia pepper the pages with information about the past, present, and future of the sport, with profiles of young kart racers to add peer appeal. So buckle up and tighten that helmet strap. We’re racing!
