Film Lookbook: The Art Of Racing In The Rain

It’s not too often we get to see motorsports as a major part of the plot in film these days, but after tons of anticipation, the best-selling book, The Art of Racing in the Rain, debuted as a comedy-drama in theaters back in August 2019. Recently while watching the film, we got to thinking: there are a lot of products on display at the racetrack that we are quite familiar with!

Book Review: Legacy Drive By Paul Slavonik

We recommend Legacy Drive to anyone looking for solid, enjoyable fictional motorsports literature. The character and plot development is great, it tugs at the heart strings, and even induces a smile and/or laugh (be careful if you’re self-conscious of laughing out loud while reading in public). The story isn’t always sad: there’s a good amount of comic relief which adds to characters’ likeability. There are lessons to be reminded of, there is inspiration to be found, and just good ol’ entertainment. It should be on the podium of any racing enthusiast’s reading list.

Holiday Wish Book: Pirelli World Challenge TC Season

The Pirelli World Challenge TC (Touring Car) class is shaping up to be quite interesting in 2017. While multiple makes and models will run, there is a good chance that the fat part of the field will be made up of BMW M235i Racing cars. BMW finished first in two elements of the 2016 TC championship, the drivers points and the team points, which bodes well for drivers running the M235i in 2017. We’ve profiled the car.
