Red Racer Books Author Interview – GT Podcast

F-R Racing's Garage Talk iRacing Podcast Logo

D.J. and Erik are joined today by a special guest, Andy Amendola of Red Racer Books. Andy has written two excellent children’s books so far called “ABC’s of Racing” and “All About Race Cars”. We sit down and talk with Andy about his love for Formula 1, what inspired him to write the books, the process behind writing the books, and what’s next for Red Racer Books.

Interview with Author, Andy Amendola – Red Racer Books

Since the offseason for racing is in full swing, we’re changing up our content a little bit in our first of hopefully many interviews, we sit down with author, Andy Amendola from Red Racer Books.  Andy has written two excellent children’s books, “ABC’s of Racing” and “All About Race Cars”.  Both books are a great introduction to Formula 1 for both kids and adults.  It was actually one of Andy’s ads on social media that introduced D.J. and his kids to his books and kicked off a conversation one day that turned into this interview.

We kick off the interview by talking about how Andy was first introduced to Formula 1 through the Netflix series, “Drive to Survive” and how the show’s influence not only made him a fan of Formula 1 but a student and historian as well.  He talks about how after a trip to the US Grand Prix, he was inspired to start writing his book series due to the lack of any recent children’s books on the topics of Formula 1.  His books not only target the competition aspect but the science and engineering.

Next, we dive into the process of research, writing the book, finding an illustrator, running a Kickstarter campaign, and ultimately printing and marketing the final product.  Finally, Andy gives us a hint at what to expect next from Red Racer Books. Be sure to stick around for the end of the episode!

Pick up Andy’s books “ABC’s of Racing” and All About Race Cars” at RedRacerBooks.com or on Amazon.
