Vickio Book Launch at IMRRC Nov. 26
Tony Vickio will release the long-anticipated book about his career in motorsports on Wednesday, Nov. 26, at the International Motor Racing Research Center.
“Shifting Gears, Tales of pistons, paint cans & personalities” is published by Preston Woods Publishing of Los Gatos, Calif., owned by Watkins Glen native Gordon Cooper.
The book launch will be from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Racing Research Center at 610 S. Decatur St., Watkins Glen.
Vickio will sign books, which will be available for purchase at the Center.
The book presents Vickio’s story of growing up in Watkins Glen, his time as a race car driver and his continuing career as an insider in the world of motorsports.
“The most fun about writing the book was the reminiscing,” Vickio said. “Once I started writing, I’d remember things I hadn’t thought of in a long time. I was always going back to these different things I had done.”
Vickio spent four years on the project.
“It would have taken four months if I knew how to type,” he said.
For more information about the book launch, contact the Racing Research Center at (607) 535-9044 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
