Synopsis

Racing Driver How to Drive Racing Cars Step by Step by Giles Chapman

Racing Driver is a thrill-a-minute training course that shows children how the worlds fastest racing cars are driven. The book is divided into three types of spread that encourage the child to imagine speeding around the track and becoming a racing champion. Driving school looks at the engineering and science of driving. On the track puts the child behind the wheel in a variety of high-speed cars, including stock cars, Formula 1 cars and sports racers. In this section, the child can find out how to speed off the grid, negotiate corners and deal with skids. Feature boxes include a checklist of things to remember; fast facts with fascinating tips and trivia; and step- by-step sequences detailing race strategies for finishing first. The final ID section pages explain how to identify different kinds of racing cars, including historical models.

Reviews

Any parent or caretaker who ever had an exuberant son or daughter with a need for speed is sure to love the new picture book. Readers interested in historical races and the cars (and drivers) that set records will pore over the photos and descriptions of cars from the early 1900s to the present. For children who can t learn enough about stock cars, IndyCar, NASCAR, and Formula 1. . . . A high-interest title. For children who can't learn enough about stock cars, IndyCar, NASCAR, and Formula 1. . . . A high-interest title.
