In the world of the near future, man travels everywhere in vehicles that hover four feet above the ground. But this brilliant new technology has inspired a super-fast, ultra-competitive sport the likes of which the world has never seen: hover car racing. It’s both dangerous and glamorous, where racers are part fighter pilot, part race-car driver, all superstar. It is the hottest ticket in town.
This is the story of Jason Chaser, a talented young racer who is selected to attend the famed International Race School, the brutal gateway to the Professional Circuit. There he will contest against the best young racers on the planet—on some of the wildest circuits you can imagine—all of them wanting one thing: to graduate from the Race School and get a contract to compete in the big time, the International Pro Circuit.

Matthew Reilly was born in Sydney in 1974 and studied Law at the University of New South Wales. After being rejected by every major publisher in Australia, Matthew self-published his first novel Contest and went on to secure a contract with Pan Macmillan. His first novel, Ice Station, was a runaway success. His achievements in Australia have now been repeated internationally with his novels becoming bestsellers in fourteen countries and nine languages. Film rights to Ice Station were optioned to Paramount Pictures in 2002. He has written both screenplays and magazine articles and has also directed three short films.From AudioFile:
Reillys fast-paced futuristic fiction features Jason Chaser, a poor student who makes it into an international race school on guts and great driving. But the story slams to a halt when Sean Mangan proceeds to read columns of stats in the midst of the races. Morgans recitation completely stops the pace of the action--high-speed races through some of the worlds most amazing countryside and cityscapes from Tasmania to New York City. Elsewhere, Mangan makes the most of the rivalries, vicious saboteurs, and good guys/gals who race to glory in this consolidation of Reillys three illustrated stories: CRASH COURSE, FULL THROTTLE, and PHOTO FINISH. In a concluding interview, Reilly talks about the storys original free release via the Internet and mentions maps and illustrations unavailable to the listener.
