Fast, Faster, Fastest

The Bill Sadler Story

The authorized biography of a polymath racecar engineer.
 
This biography of Bill Sadler tells the story of an innovator who set the racing world astir with his boldly inventive cars. His original creations—including the Formula Libre and the Sadler Mark V—brought him racing victories at tracks such as Watkins Glen and the Brighton Speed Trials throughout the 1950s and early ’60s. Sadler’s career took him from his first shop in Hamilton, Ontario, to the notorious Nevada government facility known as Area 51, where he worked on prototype aircraft and other classified projects during his decades-long hiatus from the racing world. Written with the full cooperation of Bill Sadler before he passed away in early 2022, Fast, Faster, Fastest contains never-before-seen photographs and rarely-heard stories from a brilliant engineering mind.
