The book of

The Timeless Racer

The Timeless Racer Episode 1 is this first book of a planned series, exploring a fictional past and future of racing on ground, on water, in the air, and in space. This is Daniel Simon’s second book after Cosmic Motors.

The series presents fictitious racing machines by legendary Italian racing team Masucci Motors, between the years from 1916 and 2615. Simon also includes The fierce opponents who managed to step out of Masucci’s shadow.

The main character is Vic Cooper. He travels through time to live his dream as a Masucci factory driver in the most challenging motor races of all time. This first book focusses on Vic’s first travel to 2027, and spotlights the extraordinary endurance cars Masucci X7 and the Prideux-Martin MF27. The 1981 Masucci X5 is added to shed some light into the recent history of Masucci.

The foreword has been written by racing legend Jacky Ickx, who raced in the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s for many famed teams such as Ferrari, McLaren, Porsche, Brabham or Lotus. He is the only driver to have won in Formula One, Can-Am, Le Mans, and the Paris-Dakar rally. Book includes text in English, French, and German.


Daniel Simon’s imagination is matched only by his spectacular vision of a sensational motor racing future. With its suave drivers, gorgeous girls, and international men of mystery, The Timeless Racer is a book like no other.
