For everyone who's ever wanted to know what it's really like to get behind the wheel of a racecar, automotive enthusiast Brock Yates lived the dream, and lived to tell about it. You'll smell the fumes and feel the heat rising from the track as Brock takes the reader through a refresher course at Bob Bondurant's high-performance driving school, then off to Watkins Glen, Michigan Motor Speedway, and across the country on an unsanctioned, hair-raising thirty-six-hour race from New York to Los Angeles. Sunday Driver is the perfect companion for anyone who has felt the need for speed, or just marveled as they watched their favorite driver race around the track at death-defying speed and wondered what it would feel like to be in the driver's seat.

Book Description Thunder s Mouth Press, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Amidst the turmoil of the early 1970s, automotive writer Brock Yates set out to take his readers into the insane environment of heat, noise, vibration, and ambient violence experienced by the professional racecar driver. Trading his notepad for a helmet, Yates himself got behind the wheel in the booming professional Trans-Am road racing series. Follow him through a refresher course at Bob Bondurant s high-performance driving school; race with him at Watkins Glen and storied racetracks across the country; revel in his account of the first Cannonball Run, an unsanctioned thirty-six-hour race from New York to Los Angeles that inspired no less than four motion pictures, and which the author both organized and won. In Sunday Driver, the reader is strapped in to the world of car racing some thirty years ago, every bit as exhilarating and dangerous as racing today. Seller Inventory # APC9781560255413
