“This lavishly illustrated book gives you the inside track on classic cars, routes, and racers,” a statement announcing the release reads, in part. “Race ‘The Green Hell’ in a Porsche 911, complete the course at Le Mans in a Ford GT40, compete in the Festival of Speed at Goodwood in a Jaguar E-type, and take on the NASCAR drivers at Daytona’s Speedway.”

“Fast Forward” is available from retailers for a listed price of $30.
