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.




  • In one illustration, Thomas' coupling rods are missing.
  • In the last illustration, the signal does not have a lamp.
  • On the front cover of the book, Bertie's radiator is a light silver colour, but in the book itself, it is a more darker grey.
