The Black Tiger's success at Indy has inspired Woody Hartford's partner Worm MacNess (that canny Scot and by-the-book mechanical genius) to set his heart on building a revolutionary sort of Indy car: a steam-turbine driven racer. Woody's a piston man himself, but Worm's enthusiasm about the future of turbines, and his offer to finance the whole project out of his own pocket, finally brings Woody in. The Camellia turns out to be an impressive-looking piece of engineering. But Woody is the one who will have to drive her...
