This is classic car racing! A worldwide fast growing phenomenon where colorful characters live out their most sophisticated car-crazed dreams.
GT RACER takes you literally inside the cars and onto the tracks. Three idiosyncratic race teams give you a peek at the most spectacular series of international classic racing, where the most beautiful vintage racers ever built battle it out on the world’s most glamorous racing circuits: 1950s and 60s Aston Martins, Ferraris, Maseratis, Porsches, Mustangs and Cobras race at the great circuits of Europe and the US.
“Racing is Life! Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.”
– Steve McQueen in “Le Mans,” 1971
And that’s the story we tell: A story of men who can do things only the right way; uncompromised, driven by passion just as in those golden days, when regular sports cars where modified for endurance racing – a time when the pure drive of one gifted man could take on the one of another.
As the collection and restoration of classic cars enjoys a widespread and fast growing following, so does the racing. But racing classic cars cannot be accomplished “just” with money. It needs dedication, preparation, talent and above all – great passion, resulting in an atmosphere that is truly unique. The players can’t be typecast. They are from very diverse backgrounds – only united by the deep love for racing the world’s most beautiful cars.
In GT RACER, we will follow the racers, their teams and their mind-boggling cars.
