What’s it about? Here’s from the blurb:
In the world of the near future, man travels everywhere in vehicles that hover four feet above the ground. But this brilliant new technology has inspired a super-fast, ultra-competitive sport the likes of which the world has never seen: hover car racing. It’s both dangerous and glamorous, where racers are part fighter pilot, part, race car driver, all superstar.The fun part is Reilly creates a composite sport by borrowing rules and formats from about half a dozen sports. Hover car racing has four major tournaments that make up the Grand Slam like tennis – the Sydney Classic, the London Underground Run (yes, held in London’s labyrinthine Underground), the Italian Run and the New York Masters; it has race teams and all the glamour from F1 and then some; match races and pursuits like cycling and gate races inspired by rogaining. Plus it’s all about speeding at 800 kmph.
Good, good fun, I tell you.
