The Driver

This post isn’t essentially about cars it’s about a book, about a guy, who’s into cars. I’ve been reading this book for a while now and it’s brilliant.

This book is called The Driver. Its written by a guy called Alexander Roy who was a competitor in the Gumball 3000. This book tells the story of how he got into the Gumball. However this is merely a sidetrack as the key part of the book is when Alex tries to cross America in under 32 hours and 7 minutes.

The book begins with Alex’s fathers death and follows Alex as he tries to mimic the car film Rendezvous. This then takes us through the events of 9/11 briefly and then Alex decides to compete in Gumball 3000.

This book is 100% true and is a fantastic read for anyone into cars and I recommend it to anyone.
