SCCA Solo II Novice Autocrossing Handbook by Kate Hughes,, hosted by Tire Rack.



Secrets of Solo Racing; Henry A. Watts, Motorbooks International, ISBN 0-9620573-1-2. My personal favorite. Full of great information on how to get started, and how to get faster! Very practical, with subtle humour throughout that makes the book a very enjoyable read.

How to Make Your Car Handle; Fred Puhn, HP Books, ISBN nnn. Outstanding book to start learning how to evaluate and modify performance suspensions.

Winning Autocross SOLO II Competition; Richard Turner & J.B. Miles, Turner Design, ISBN nnn. A good technical overview of Autocross driving. The tone of the book is very serious and filled with opinions stated as absolutes, but still a good addition to the library.

Bob Bondurant on High Performance Driving; Bob Bondurant with John Blakemore, Motorbooks International, ISBN 0-87938-751-3. A little too much of a biography of Bob Bondurant and his school (Whaddya know - Paul Williams drives race cars!), but still a good read. Some outstanding photos that display what other books only talk about.
