ACM Book Club

Each quarter, we will select a book to read and discuss related to cars, driving, racing, and other related topics.

Join America’s Car Museum as we read Faster by Neal Bascomb, the true story of a banned Jewish race car driver seeking to upset the Nazis’ attempt at winning the Grand Prix. As Nazi Germany launched its campaign of racial terror and pushed the world toward war, three unlikely heroes—a driver banned from the best European teams because of his Jewish heritage, the owner of a faltering automaker company, and the adventurous daughter of an American multimillionaire—banded together to challenge Hitler’s dominance at the Grand Prix, the apex of motorsport.

We are especially excited to announce that the author, Neal Bascomb, will be joining us for our discussion!

The discussion and Q & A will take place on Zoom, February 28th at 6pm. Register for free online to receive the link.
