RED RACER BOOKS - HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

Red Racer Books Holiday Gift Guide - F1 Racing Gifts Your Family will Love

Seasons Greetings, race fans and families! For those of you who have been following along, you know I’m a relatively new F1 fan (“Generation Drive to Survive” and proud), I’m obsessed with all things Formula 1 related, and that I’m married with two young kids–Blanca and Joaquin. I wanted to share my love of racing and cars with them, but couldn’t find many good books about F1 for kids–so I wrote my own.  Over this F1-binging and book writing adventure, I did a lot of “research,” by which I mean, buying lots of racing-related merch, books, and most importantly TOYS!  Since it’s that time of year, where we all seek out the best possible gifts for our loved ones, I...

A is for AUSTIN is AMAZING - A recap of my experience at the US Grand Prix in Austin and Circuit of the Americas

A is for AUSTIN is AMAZING - A recap of my experience at the US Grand Prix in Austin and Circuit of the Americas

The 2022 US Grand Prix in Austin was so special. I returned to the track that inspired my Red Racer Books journey and this year I got to experience so many milestones that I just had to share!

What’s amazing is that when I visited Austin to attend my first Grand Prix last year in 2021, I only had a seed of an idea for a single book.  But after attending the race at Circuit of the Americas (aka COTA) and seeing Formula 1 Racing up close and personal, not to mention the energy and size of the crowds, all the support racing series such as  the W-series, which is the women’s racing, and so much more, I got really inspired.  In fact I already started formulating my plan for a whole series of books on the flight home to Miami! 

That's why it was so special to return to the US Grand Prix, having published three kids books about Formula 1 Racing, all meant to be guides for future lifetime fans and families.

Launching Red Racer Books on Kickstarter

Launching Red Racer Books on Kickstarter

I am launching our first set of books, the ABCs of Racing, My First Guide to Formula 1TM Racing, on Kickstarter and I wanted to share more on why.  But first let's start with the basics... What is Kickstarter?  Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform for creative projects.  It helps projects like this one get off the ground by allowing people to pledge support in exchange for early access to products. In my case, that means pre-ordering the kids books and a bunch of other cool rewards. How does it work?  All projects on Kickstarter have funding goals and a limited time to meet those goals - otherwise you get your money back.  33 days is the number we landed on for our project...

Why I started Red Racer Books

Why I started Red Racer Books

Formula 1 racing has taken the US by storm. And our family got swept up. We became fanatics after watching the Netflix series, Drive to Survive and the epic 2021 season. And our kids loved it too.   When we started looking for kids book about F1 to fuel that passion, we realized there wasn’t much out there. So I did something crazy,  and created my own.  Introducing Red Racer Presents the ABCs of racing, my first guide to Formula 1 racing, written by me, Andy Amendola.  I'm a father and a bit of an F1 fan, if you couldn’t tell.  And now I'm the creator of Red Racer Books, a whole new kids book series.  When I started developing this idea, there were...
