Racing. Winning. That's all that matters in this exciting teen story about driving competitively.
Fifteen-year-old Archie is a top kart driver, aiming to win the Challenge series and its prize of racing in Europe.
He loves the speed, the roar of the engine, the tactics and the thrill of driving to the limits.
Craig is his main rival, and there’s also Silver, who drives like she’s got a demon inside. Archie knows he’ll need all his skill and focus to win. But sometimes, too, you need plain old luck. Can Archie overcome the odds and win?
