You'll have to read it. You will read it eventually - and besides, you really ought to, before the movie comes out. Hee hee.

Yes, Bob races it, in the Pennsylvania regional hillclimb races; the races are real (for information see here but please don't try to learn any technical specifics from my story. Yes, I've gone up one of the courses in my own car, though at a normal driving speed - that part is quite real. No, I have not raced, nor expect to do so. But I've been to them, and they are fun to watch.
