Book Title:

Right, so I'm a rev-head and a massive fan of the yearly Mount Panorama race. So the opening sequence of QUICK not only appealed, it works. It describes the action on one of those mad opening laps like you were there.

Having first come across the author when he was known as "The Honest Conman" talking on ABC Regional Radio - I'm going to take a guess at the idea he might know what he's talking about here.
