Max is fascinated by everything to do with the cars his grandfather looks after. One Saturday morning when he sees an old car that bears his surname, Champion, on the bonnet, he discovers that his grandfather used to make - and race - some of the best cars around. His Ideas Book was a treasure trove of sketches and plans but it had been stolen by the nasty Mr Grabber.

The super illustrations enhance this charming story.
