The spectacle

by Chris Workman | 15 December 2016
Category: Motor Sports
This is a mix of historical fact and entertainment for young readers and race fans to learn about The Greatest Spectacle in Racing -- the Indianapolis 500. The book features a vast number of drivers, teams and race cars that have made an impact on the rich history of racing at the Brickyard. Rather than run through a chronological list of each race, the book breaks the content up into to series of short topical sections such as The Golden Era, The British Invasion and The Four-Timer Club. A dad serves as a narrator as he teaches his children about the Indy 500, which provides some light-hearted interaction with the children to compliment the fact-based content. An intro and outro featuring four-time winner A J Foyt ties it all together in a unique, identifiable way. The book illustrations are as authentic as possible, depicting the actual race cars and their period paints schemes, as well as many of the heroes who drove and / or built them. Readers also see the evolution of The Brickyard over time and get a sense of who the machines that race in the Indy 500 have developed over time. Readers are treated to a mix of car views, including in-car, side, front and backward looking perspectives. All illustrations are hand-drawn and then digitised and coloured for placement in the book.
