This article is about the book. You may be looking for the magazine story, the golden book, the Dutch DVD or the special.

The Great Race is a Step Into Reading book.


Bertie wants to race and Thomas happily takes up the challenge. Bertie takes an early lead, but a patient Thomas proves there are advantages to riding on tracks instead of roads.




  • This book is not to be confused with the 2016 special, The Great Race, nor its golden book adaption.


  • In one illustration, Thomas' coupling rods are missing.
  • In the last illustration, the signal does not have a lamp.
  • The front cover has Bertie's radiator a light silver colour, but throughout the book it varies from a medium grey to a more dark grey.
