Tracks: Racing the Sun

"Every fan of motor racing should read this book" - Mario Andretti

In this epic novel about the motor-racing heroes of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany, legendary characters battle to win incredible races on switchback roads along the edges of ravines. Exploring the relationships between the champions as much as the sporting events themselves, this is a thrilling tale based on true rivalries, triumphs and disasters during a fascinating period in European sporting history

A book is sometimes considered a personal expression, and while it is true the physical act of writing is an isolating experience, the process of getting it fit for publication is all about collaboration. This book would never have seen the light of day without the following people and their acts of kindness on my behalf. I don't have the words to describe my gratitude.

My parents Gianni and Elisa - Who always hope for the best

Luisa Ghibaudo - She knows more famous drivers than I know people!

Paul Scott Mulvey - Cover art and design

Bob Simmerman - Videos, and friend

Giuseppe Martini - For being a brother and a bruva

Achille Varzi - For being kind enough not to hate me

Ian Bell - A 'mate' in the true sense of the word

Alx Danielsson - Who always has time

Patty Reid - Wow!

Jon Denton - Digital puppeteer 

And finally for everyone at Aurora Metro, especially Cheryl Robson and Rebecca Gillieron, thank you.
