A true-life story of crisis, love, transformation, and triumph set in the colorful, dangerous world of auto racing. Crash Test is Canadian race car driver Chris Bye’s story of his brother’s nearly fatal highway accident in North Carolina and epic struggle to recover from severe brain damage. It’s also his own story of emerging from a coma of self-centeredness through helping his brother recover, every step of the way. Set in the North American racing world, this book shows how two men’s tenacity, tested on the race track, helped bring them through what became the race of their lives. Crash Test is also an inside look at making a living in the world of professional sports car racing, with thrilling flashbacks to races that the brothers participated in, including winning the Toronto Star 24 Hours of Mosport with Porsche.
