Le Mans: Racing is Everything has now premiered on Amazon Prime Video. The limited series explores the 24-hour car race that takes place in Le Mans, France annually.
Known as “The Mount Everest of Motorsport", the nearly century old race has seen everyone from Formula 1 legends to Hollywood elite, including Paul Newman, Steve McQueen and Patrick Dempsey, behind the wheel.
Travelling from Kuala Lumpur to the Côte D’Azur, shot in breathtaking 4K and with unprecedented access to six of the teams competing for glory, Le Mans: Racing is Everything is the inside story of a race that pushes technology to the limit.
Led by cocksure three-time champion, André Lotterer, and competing for their 9th win in a decade, Audi are the kings of Le Mans. But challenging for the crown are Porsche, desperate to win back a race that was once synonymous with their brand. Their hopes are riding on F1 veteran, Mark Webber, who after two near-fatal crashes at Le Mans, has yet to finish the race.
Plucky newcomers Nissan are in pursuit as well with a radical, untested car design and a lead driver, Jann Mardenborough, who they scouted from his sofa through a video game contest.
Also battling for Le Mans glory are Rebellion’s Nico Prost, who drives in the shadow of his iconic father Alain Prost, along with Toyota’s Sébastien Buemi and Aston Martin’s Darren Turner.
Le Mans: Racing is Everything is available to stream now on Amazon Prime Video
