A new children’s book has been released which was originally written in small e-novelettes; each was released at successive meetings of 2016’s Caterham Graduate race series.
Max Navaero – Racing Driver
The story is about Max Navaero, a ten-year-old boy who goes to his dad’s first race meeting and manages to take part in the racing himself. On the way, he meets and befriends many of the racing drivers, including Lord Oftenbroke, Grayson Smidt, Crazy Pete, Parky Ranger and the nasty Baron von Cheetah. It is all very realistically portrayed, accurately describing various characters who support the race series, such as Padrick Dragon, Steve the Spook, Pater Goblin, Rock Bernie (he’s a Rock Troll) and each and every Andy McMillimig.
Each e-novelette will be a stand-alone story covering an entire race meeting for the Caterham Classics. Some parts of the stories actually happened in real life and all the characters, apart from Baron von Cheetah, are based on real people.
The intention is to charge for the book, but it will initially be free to download.
Please feel free to leave feedback. For the adults out there, just remember that it is a children’s book. Enjoy.
