Overview

An interactive introduction to car racing that recreates the immediacy and excitement of being behind the wheelRacing Driver is a thrilling training course that shows children how to drive the world’s fastest cars. Filled with stats and facts, the book includes basic mechanics and driving tips on track and off-road racing.
Young readers who dream of becoming racing drivers can pore over cars and voraciously compile information. The “Pit Stop” section looks at car engineering and the science of driving. “On the Track” puts readers behind the wheel of a variety of vehicles —including stock cars, F1 cars, and sports racers—and shows how to speed off the grid, negotiate corners at high speed, and deal with spins and skids. There are also ID guides to different kinds of racing cars, including historical models.
With a wealth of accurate information and a hands-on approach that will appeal to children, Racing Driver brings the excitement of a popular sport to life for the younger generation.
