The Art of Race Car Design Reviews
This book has been mistitled...there is very little about race car design in it. This is less Bob Riley's fault and more Jonathan Ingram's fault. Jonathan must not know anything about Race Car Design or even what those words mean.
A very good read, with interesting stories by many of the drivers and other individuals named in the book. More of a "how I did it" rather than a how-to book. You don't have to be interested in designing race cars to enjoy this book, just an interest in racing.
A very well thought out book in which the layman can understand. Bob Riley is an iconic American Race Car designer and this book is much appreciated. Great price as well!
Fascinating accounts of an interesting career.
great read ... love it
An enjoyable story detailing of how Bob Riley learned the basics of race car engineering by seeing, doing, and developing a progression of race cars that have set the standard in so many classes of motorsports. A proven master in the craft of race car design and development.
If you like race car design this is a great book by a guy that has done it all. A great practical approach to race car design.
