Where the writer meets the road : a collection of articles, broadcast intros, and profiles by Sam Posey( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

For more than 40 years, racing fans all over the world have followed Sam Posey's unique career as a driver, writer, and broadcaster. Posey wrote his first article for Road & Track in 1968, the same year he drove a Chevrolet Camaro for Roger Penske's team in the Trans-Am series. In the 1970s he not only won at Sebring and finished on the podium at Le Mans, but also published a highly regarded autobiography. -- Posey retired driving in 1982, but in the years since then his public profile has grown through his articles for Road & Track, Sports Illustrated, and other publications, as well as his work as a television commentator. In Where the Writer Meets the Road, Posey has selected the best of his work in both fields. The result is a remarkably varied mix of short and long pieces on subjects ranging racing in the rain at Le Mans to test-driving the propeller-driven Wind Wagon created by his uncle Teddy in the 1920s. There are also examples of the shorter broadcast introductions he produced for Formula One grands prix at Spa and Monaco, and even non-automotive events like the Iditarod sled race. -- No matter what the venue or circumstances, Posey's writing captures the excitement of racing as well as an insider's understanding of how the sport really works, both on and off the track. It also reflects his innate curiosity and enthusiasm for a wide range of non-automotive interests such as painting, art, design and architecture
