Book Description

In 2006, a small unavailing university auto racing team began building a racecar that would challenge the best engineering schools in the world. With fewer people and resources than any of the top competitors, the only way they were going to win was to push the limit, go for broke, and hope for more than a little luck.

By the time they got to the racetrack, they knew: In the fog of fierce competition, whether you win or lose, you learn the hardest lessons about engineering, teamwork, friendship, and yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read if you like race cars 15 Sept. 2013

I had no idea what Formula SAE was, so downloaded Matt Brown's book out of curiosity. I soon learnt that Formula SAE was a series for cars built by American university students and I then expected the worst.

I was pleasantly surprised, this book is well written and made an interesting read (for a petrol-head). If you have no interest in motor racing you may struggle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant brilliant read 25 July 2014

As someone who spends a great deal of time and money following my own motorsport dreams I could completely relate to all the different personalities in this book. All described in such a way that I couldn't put my kindle down until I'd finished the book and found out what happened. A must I really must head back into the garage...

I too was completely ignorant about Formula SAE, but that's OK: the author takes the time to explain what it's all about, and strikes the perfect balance- not patronizing, but not assuming I know everything either.
This is a great book, with the author's passion for the subject shining through. Formula SAE is clearly a subject very dear to his heart, and his enthusiasm and knowledge drags the reader in.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone with a penchant for motorsport- think of it as Formula 1 for college students.

Anyone who likes cars or racing will like this book. It gives good reading from the point of view of a low budget racig effort and what it takes to be involved.
