VIRTUAL TALK: “Faster” with Neil Bascomb
June 1, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
How a Jewish Driver, an American Heiress and a Legendary Car Beat Hitler’s Best
As Nazi Germany pushed the world toward war in 1938, there was another race in progress. The Grand Prix in Pau, France. Adolf Hitler wanted to reign supreme there, too. His elite racing team had millions upon millions in resources and driver Rudi Caraccioloa, whose killer instincts had put him at the top of the racing world. Now meet the underdogs. Renee Dreyfus was a former top driver on the international circuit, but by the mid-1930s, he had been banned from the best European teams and fast cars because of his Jewish heritage. Charles Weiffenbach was head of Delahaye, a down-on-its-luck automaker teetering toward the brink. And, she…well, she was the brash American heiress who yearned to reclaim the glory of her rally-driving days. Together, the three took the German team on—and down—in what was one of the most inspiring, death-defying upsets of all time. Faster is a full-throttle read from start to finish.
