Top positive review
A must read for any Cannonball Run / Gumball fan.
on 11 November 2015
I had wanted to read this book for a very long time, so was quite pleased when I eventually purchased it. It sadly wasnt as good as I expected. It seems to cover more of the statistics and details as to who finished in which positions etc rather than a lot of the racing. I was expecting more tales and stories - possibly as a result of loving the Cannonball & Gumball Rally type movies. It does cover some of that stuff though, and what I found really surprising was that the characters in the Cannonball Run films were actually based on real characters and experiences in the races. I knew some of the stuff was, such as the Ambulance etc, but didnt realize some of the stories in the film actually happened.
Still, id recommend reading it for any fans of this sort of road racing as these guys were the ones who started it. Id also recommend a book called "The Driver" by Alex Roy.
