Start your engines...the race cars are here! The thrill of seeing cars zoom at more than 200 miles per hour has made racing one of the world's most popular sports. But what are those high-tech autos--both NASCAR and Formula One cars--like once they've slowed down? Get up close and see their technology, mechanics, and design for yourself. Find out how they're built and what makes them different from regular cars you see on the street. Get a huge fold-out view of the engine. (It's also a poster on the back of the jacket). Take a look at the nitrogen-filled tires. And the picture of a dashboard is so big you'll feel as if you're sitting in the driver's seat. It's the next best thing to being at the wheel!

If you have a child who likes race cars and wants to see them up close, this is the book for you. Great photos, many of them life-sized foldouts.
