The Stainless Steel Carrot: An Auto Racing Odyssey
by Sylvia Wilkinson

Car racing is an expensive sport, both in terms of finance and personal sacrifice. The Stainless Steel Carrot is a nonfiction account of eighteen months in the life of a professional driver at the turning point of his career. Consistently winning races in a Datsun 2.5-liter sedan, he waits for the chance to prove himself in a faster car. When at last he gets it, neither the money nor the technical experience available are adequate. The formula car - the 'carrot' dangled infront of his nose for so long - evaporates in a mass of tangled and twisted steel. This is a book that brings into sharp focus the complexities of a sport in which the winning combination is a delicate balance of dollars and daring.
