Fifty entrants in The Great Race ready themselves and their vehicles to run the racecourse at speeds exceeding 1,000 kph, each bent on only one thing – reaching the finish line first. This is the way it has been for 500,000 races. This is the way the Civilized Universe maintains its civilization in a conflict-free state: the winner of the race selects the Prime—the titular leader of the CU. Retired consulting engineer, Arthur Robert Lexington, hopes to live his life-long dream of building and racing his modified Porsche 914 in a local car club in Arizona. Armet’Lu, a Human, captains an interstellar freighter delivering cargo under contract. It is a business he has pursued for the last millennium of his 16,400-year life. Between the desert of Arizona and the trackless void of space, Art and Lu meet and clash bitterly. Acrimony and spite underscore the formative moments after they meet, but the four years remaining before the upcoming race allow them time to forge a bond as they struggle to build a fast and powerful vehicle. The greatest race of their lives will be run.

The Great Race recounts the exciting story of a century-long battle among automakers for market share, profit, and technological dominance—and the thrilling race to build the car of the future. The world’s great manufacturing juggernaut—the $3 trillion automotive industry—is in the throes of a revolution. Its future will include cars Henry Ford and Karl Benz could scarcely imagine. They will drive themselves, won’t consume oil, and will come in radical shapes and sizes. But the path to that future is fraught. The top contenders are two traditional manufacturing giants, the US and Japan, and a newcomer, China. Team America has a powerful and little-known weapon in its arsenal: a small group of technology buffs and regulators from California. The story of why and how these men and women could shape the future—how you move, how you work, how you live on Earth—is an unexpected tale filled with unforgettable characters: a scorned chemistry professor, a South African visionary who went for broke, an ambitious Chinese ex-pat, a quixotic Japanese nuclear engineer, and a string of billion-dollar wagers by governments and corporations. “To explain the scramble for the next-generation auto—and the roles played in that race by governments, auto makers, venture capitalists, environmentalists, and private inventors—comes Levi Tillemann’s The Great Race…Mr. Tillemann seems ideally cast to guide us through the big ideas percolating in the world’s far-flung workshops and labs” (The Wall Street Journal). His account is incisive and riveting, explaining how America bounced back in this global contest and what it will take to command the industrial future.
