Crashing Intrigue

 A review of the novel CRASH by Toby Vintcent

Review by Dan Knutson

The teammate - every driver's toughest opponent. Both in the same machine, creating the rawest comparison of ability. All the tougher when you are both in the fastest car, and in a team that is a shoe-in for both championships. Two drivers who are the only contenders for the title. There are bound to be tensions.

That sounds like a pretty familiar story in today's Formula 1 world.

But in the novel CRASH, two controversial on-track clashes between Remy Sabatino and her Russian teammate Yegor Baryshnikov are the mere starting point that kick off a tale of political, legal, espionage, commercial and F1 technical intrigue intertwined with corruption, sabotage and backstabbing played out in Moscow all the way up to the Kremlin.

CRASH is a twists and turns "Whodunit?"

CRASH is the second novel by Toby Vincent that follows the Ptarmigan Formula 1 team and its female driver Sabitino. Vincent, who served as officer in the British Army during the Cold War as part of NATO's Rapid Development Force, is currently working on the third novel in the series.
