The Little Red Racing Car: Hardcover by Carpe Viam

The book that started it all!

When Dwight Knowlton’s son was born, he knew he had to find the perfect book to share his passion for autos. When he couldn’t find what he was looking for, he wrote and illustrated one. The Little Red Racing Car is an awards winning book that started an outlet for Dwight’s imagination and Carpe Viam- Seize The Road was founded. All the designs and creations are created by Dwight to share his joy with his son and the world.



Yahoo!® Autos calls it, “The Best Kids Car Book Ever”.

This book is full to the brim with the best things in life: Family, History, Racing Cars, Hard Work… and a Dream Realized.
