Drift Race by David Jubermann

May 11, 2012

Drift Race by David Jubermann. Pub. Epsum Media Ltd, 2012.

David Jubermann has written an excellent novel about motor racing and the boy racer culture that surrounds the sport.

Leon and his friends and rivals have a passion for cars that is all consuming. They spend all their money and time on cars and they drive fast and often without control. A split second can cost a life and wreck a car.

Leon is a level headed boy whose Japanese father was killed drift racing. When his uncle arrives from Japan the day he wrote off his mother’s car, the speed devil inside Leon is awakened. Leon buys a 1989 Silvia S13 car with a GT-R engine and his uncle teaches him how to drive it and to drift race.

Just as Master tutors Grasshopper, Leon learns the secret of drift racing -“you need to have grip and the power to release that grip when you want to”

There has to be a hot girl in this and there is. Lorna is a goddess that would make you weep with desire and Leon has her as his girl friend. What more could a fast lad like him want?

There are wide boys around and street rivalry and of course there are going to be casualties.

At 342 pages it is a big read for many of those who will be interested in this subject. But those that do will be well satisfied.
