Faster by Neal Bascomb

June 1, 2021 (by Aesop)

Told through the lens of an up and coming driver during the evolution of automobile racing, this story tells the fascinating history of how auto racing played in 1930's Europe and Hitler's propaganda leading up to World War II. A fast paced read for any history buff or car aficionado. 

Recommended as an audiobook. Did you ever wonder where all those fancy car Brand names came from and how to pronounce them correctly? As it turns out, nearly all of them have their origins here in 1930's Europe and the auto racing circuit. We can still hear the pronunciations of those fancy Brands (Maserati, Porsche, Benz...). Edoardo Bellarini's narration is a delight to the ear.
