Overview

Grand Prix racing pits the world's best drivers and the world's most professional race teams against each other in the race to win the World Championships. It attracts hundreds of thousands of race fans to track's around the world and millions more to their TV sets, twenty weekends each season.

Grand Prix racing is driven by intense competition, emotion, will-to-win and total commitment, both on and off the track.

Grand Prix racing technology is among the most advanced in all the world of computers, aerodynamics, engineering, data collection and techno-manufacturing. It cannot exist without this technology.

This technology is the magnet that attracts the skills of brilliant engineers and computer wizards, like Zak Radford, a young American computer genius who joins the Bartholomew Team in the hopes of adding his skills to the world's top level of sporting technology.

Zak finds himself enmeshed in a vicious web of cyber-cheating and intrigue that is far from the glamor and heroic image presented on TV, the Internet and in the specialist racing media around the world. Instead he discovers a threat that is all too capable of killing the sport.

Zak and his friend, the beautiful Russian Juliana Komarov find themselves drawn into a high dollar conspiracy that uses top secret technology to influence the results of Grand Prix races, and the World Championship itself, but he cannot move to save the sport until the battle for absolute financial and political power of Grand Prix racing has been resolved.

Zapped has been described as a beautifully written masterpiece of sheer cleverness, accuracy and originality, and as a "must read" for everyone who has ever experienced even the vaguest interest in Formula One or racing.

It is, perhaps, the most important novel ever written about the sport of Grand Prix motor racing.

Editorial Reviews

Former Managing Director of MCD Circuits Ltd - John Webb
"Zapped is a beautifully written masterpiece of sheer cleverness and originality. It is a "must read" for everyone who has ever experienced even the vaguest interest in Formula One. In his very first novel Alan Wilson has already established himself as a more elegant and imaginative Dick Francis of motor racing".
