Jump on board The Taylor Turbochaser for a rollercoaster road trip!

Eleven-year-old Amy Taylor loves cars more than anything. And even though she was in a really bad car accident when she was eight – which means she has to use a wheelchair – she’s determined to be a race car driver one day.

So, when her genius inventor best friend, Rahul, turns her wheelchair into a super-car, Amy jumps straight into the driver’s seat. And it’s not long before she and her friends set off on an epic adventure!

Who’s who?

Let’s meet the gang! (from left to right)

– Jack is Amy’s grumpy older brother – and the most sarcastic 14-year-old ever!

– Janet is Amy and Rahul’s friend, and is permanently away with the fairies!

– Inventor Rahul transforms his best friend Amy’s wheelchair into The Taylor Turbochaser.

– Amy wants to prove she can be a great racing driver – and she won’t let her old wheelchair with its wobbly wheel stop her!
