Actor Turned Racer
Michael Fassbender documented his path to racing in Le Mans. The actor underwent some serious training in order to get ready for the most amazing endurance race in the entire world. Now that journey will come to the screen in a series on YouTube called Road to Le Mans.
The series will debut on October 11. The series follows Fassbender as he races and trains in his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, which is the Porsche car that comes ready to race from the factory with power coming from a 4.0-liter flat-six engine.
The trailer for the series just recently went up on YouTube. In it, Fassbender says, “I’ve just always felt drawn to going fast into a corner—and fast out—and just naturally felt connected to it. And now I want to go to the ultimate place.”
The tailer says this is the first season of the series, which indicates to us that there will be more seasons of this to come. Fassbender has been seriously racing for a few years now. In 2017 and 2018 he raced a factory-built 488 Challenge race car managing to win one round, according to Carscoops.
