Racer is a dramatic poem set on the Isle of Man TT, the most famous, and most dangerous, motorcycle road-race circuit in the world. Here, The Racer screams his way round the roads, at speeds of up to 200mph, recounting his life and loves on and off the circuit, making one final attempt to be the champion.

Cover by Clifford Harper. Racer completes a set of three A6 books by Kevin Fegan, the others being Blast and Let Your Left Hand Sing.
