The Joy of Racing Solo is about the people, cars and events that impressed me. The book tells our tragedies and triumphs during our nearly four decades in the sport of autocrossing and SCCA Solo II.

This book, The Joy of Racing Solo, is about the racing experiences of my wife Joyce and I, who spent more than forty years enjoying sports cars, traveling, competition and the companionship of people dedicated to racing.

I share my memories of the very early years of the sport of autocrossing before it was known as SCCA Solo II. There are also stories about our years of racing on frozen lakes.

These stories are humorous and touching as we recall the successes and failures we had during our adventures. Best of all, we remember stories of some of the greatest friends and competitors from all corners of the United States and Canada.

  Great Read , 08/01/2009
Reviewer: Lloyd W Loring
A fascinating story of one family who found fun and companionship while driving their cars in the sport of autocrossing. Like racing, but one car at a time against the clock. Since I’vbe known them for years as part of the sport I may be prejudiced! Neat folks. Good story.

  What a fun Read! , 08/01/2009
Reviewer: Chuck Sample
This book really captures what an exciting and fulfilling life that can be achieved racing with friends that you will cherish all of your life. Jeanette and I could not put this book down! It rekindled memories of our love for the sport and especially the wonderful friendships we developed over the years. You don't have to be a racer to enjoy this forty year journey of the Looman's, and you may just want to follow their lead! Excellent book!

  Looman's...just a blessing! , 08/03/2009
Reviewer: Debbie Fessler
Well, I read the book yesterday...JUST LOVED IT! I just know it's going to be a hit! I laughed, cried, giggled, and cried again. The stories are so funny, interesting, and tear jerking all at the same time. Davie and Joyce made such an impact on the sport of SCCA Solo Racing...and their friends...they have no idea! I'm sure they think they were just another "couple" hitting the pavement. They're so wrong! The lessons they unknowingly taught to so many of us are just a blessing.
