“The World’s Fastest Place” is Alexandra Lier’s tribute to the vanishing era of internal combustion and fossil fuel racing. These are portraits of a generation of Speedseekers who cherish the smell of gasoline and oil like the very air we breathe; people whose sense of purpose is tied to the creation of record setting vehicles. They are powered by absolute devotion, friendship, and the ambition to win—from the first turn of the wrench all the way to the starting line at Bonneville.
