In 1970, Sylvia Wilkinson was a writer in the category known as 'young Southern Woman Novelist'. While her novels and teaching paid the bills she had a passion for motorsports that led her to write The Stainless Steel Carrot: An Auto Racing Odyssey. The book profiled young up-and-coming road racer John Morton as he raced the BRE Datsun 510 in the 1971 and 1972 SCCA Trans-Am 2.5 Challenge. John won the championships and continued on a road-racing career that saw dozens of championship level victories around the country and abroad. The book, well regarded among both racers and general audience readers, has been out of print since 1973. Original copies often sell for over $100 online and at collectors events. Now, thanks to years of requests from fans, and Sylvia s interest in animals, the book is republished with additional material. -- Amazon.com.The book profiled young up-and-coming road racer John Morton as he raced the BRE Datsun 510 in the 1971 and 1972 SCCA Trans-Am 2.5 Challenge.
