Here is a little book full of advice for those starting out on a motor racing career, or who intend to do so. Some of it is rather superficial, even a thought childish (such as explanations of how valve-gear works) but most will be very helpful to the absolute novice building a competition car on a small budget and facing a race for the first time. Foulis has broken new ground by including coupons for discounts when buying selected motor-racing equipment or when making use of Thruxton’s Ian Taylor Racing Drivers School queries service, so the outlay is especially modest. Taylor wrote the foreword. WB
