Summer of Speed you takes on an energetic journey following one driver's exploits during the 2005 Legends Chargers Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway. James Auld is the racing driver on which the story centres. The racer from Britain who pushed hard and took the title favourite to a championship shoot-out at the final race of the series. Told by James himself, this is his story of his dramatic summer of spectacular wins, spins, disasters and successes! Events on and off the track are recounted, the good days, the bad days, the crashes, the wins and life away from the races in Atlanta. Going much further more honestly than most similar books of this nature, the reader gets a brutal introduction with James' crash in the NASCAR supporting race at the Golden Corral 500, then goes through the process of how James got into this series, his car and the fantastically realistic imaginary run in which the reader drives in one of the practice sessions on race night, as the grandstands fill up and the tension rises. A resume of James' lengthy car racing career to date, including two championship wins followed by introductions and pictures of the leading contenders completes the reader's picture before going into an event by event recount of the dramatic Thursday Thunder series itself. Here, you effectively ride with James during the races, witnessing all the action and incidents, some quite serious, building up to the final race championship showdown. Interspersed are chapters illustrating life away from the tracks and the dramas resulting from a tornado destroying Atlanta Motor Speedway... Interesting memoir of the 'year in the life' variety.
