You all know that I’m a bit of a petrol head and a lover of motorsport generally. My son has grown up with my love of Formula One in particular and I’m proud to say that he’s also a Ferrari fan! I knew he’d enjoy looking at the latest release from Quarto Children’s Books, Fast Forward by Adam Skinner which was published earlier this month.
Fast Forward is a large 80-page hardback book aimed at children aged 7 years and over. It showcases eighteen different circuits and iconic events, held in thirteen different countries. It’s not just Formula One that’s covered, but also Nascar, the Dakar Rally and the Indy 500.
The book is beautifully illustrated throughout and provides information on each circuit or event, as well as on the drivers and cars who have raced it.
The start of the F1 season is held at Albert Park in Australia these days and I can remember just how unlucky Ricciardo was in 2014 and how lucky Martin Brundle was to get out of his 1996 crash there.
Spa is somewhere I’d love to watch the racing live one day. It’s such a challenging circuit, undulation through the Ardennes forest. As with all of the circuits and races featured, there’s information about different corners or elements of the race and lots of facts and figures for children to enjoy.
For something totally different, the iconic street circuit race around the Circuit of Monaco is a must see. Fast Forward also informs children about the racing cars of days gone by, cars that my Dad will have seen racing in the past.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is somewhere else I’d love to take my son one day with it’s uphill climbing. My son was lucky enough to meet Sir Stirling Moss at Flywheel a few years ago, and we both adore the E type Jaguars.
