The book Formula USA by Pete Fink
No other motorsport series has as much history and tradition to offer as the IndyCars. And what many fans wished for has now become reality: After his four NASCAR books, TV commentator and self-confessed US motorsport fan Pete Fink now takes a detailed look at the IndyCars and the legendary 500 Miles of Indianapolis.
“Formula USA” describes the bizarre and sometimes tragic beginnings of IndyCar racing just as clearly as the many ups and downs of the racing series over the past decades. One of the big topics is the infamous “split”, which almost cost the IndyCars their lives.
Pete Fink doesn't skimp on cross-references to influences from NASCAR and Formula 1 and always ensures the best motorsport entertainment with his usual, relaxed narrative style. Mario Andretti, A.J. Foyt, Dan Gurney, the Unser family, Roger Penske, Chip Ganassi, Tony George – on 400 pages they play leading roles in “Formula USA”.
In short: The combination of clever writing and in-depth specialist knowledge from the Munich native makes “Formula USA” a real reading pleasure for all IndyCar fans and those who would like to become one!
The book Formula USA by Pete Fink has 400 pages plus 32 pages of pictures.
