Speed kills

It's Grand Prix weekend, calling to all the speed demons, thrill seekers and groupies. 

I am not a fan of the races.  I just don't understand the benefits, the purpose of auto racing, with all the noise, the pollution and the risks. 

One of the minor characters in The Year of the Rabbit died in a race car crash.  I didn't take pleasure in killing him off but he provided a good contrast to the way Father Gio lived his life. 

  1. What are the benefits of auto racing?  
  2. How does auto/motorized racing help our society and our planet?  
Does anyone else see racing as the epitome of our failing civilization that is driving around and around in circles, faster and faster until...
I hope I haven't turned people away with these questions.  I am seeking serious, helpful answers.  
Now that I have offended some and hopefully intrigued the majority of level-headed folks, I invite you to read more excerpts from The Year of The Rabbit, a Novel About Fate, Family and Forgiveness
Join others who enjoyed this unpolished gem of Canadian fiction.  Download the first few chapters of the eBook for free from Smashwords.  If you like what you have read, you can then purchase the entire book for 99 cents or more (you set the price). 

I don't mind if you take your time.
