When my son was born, I went looking for the perfect automotive children's book to share my love of cars with him. I couldn't find what I was looking for, so I decided to create it.
The Little Red Racing Car is a father and son story about a very special car, a real car, the Maserati® 300S. It was a winning racing car in the 50's and a favorite of a legendary driver by the name of Sir Stirling Moss.
While the story itself is fiction, it is full of truth and history. Part way through writing the book, Sir Stirling even lent his name to the story - and incredible kindness.
And inside the back cover, you'll find a completely accurate blueprint drawing of the 300S, which I've created complete with the specs of the car, and even the long lost mark of Carrosserie Fantuzzi, the Italian coach-builder that made the bodies for Maserati. The Fantuzzi mark is a story of its own, one that took weeks of research to track down, even with the help of the world's leading Maserati expert.
