Racing Driver is a thrill-a-minute training course that shows children how the world's 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.
