Historic racing is a worldwide, fast growing phenomenon where colorful characters live out their most sophisticated, car-crazed dreams. GT RACER takes the viewer literally inside the cars and onto the tracks. GT RACER’s first season airing on UKTV’s channel ‘Dave’ is one of UK’s top rated shows on television. In Season II twelve idiosyncratic race teams give a peek at the most spectacular series of international classic racing, where the most beautiful classic racers ever built battle it out on the world's most glamorous racing circuits: Bizzarrinis, Ferraris, Jaguars, Morgans, Mustangs and Cobras race at the great circuits of Europe and America.
The first Episode, shot at the 2008 “Le Mans Classic”, takes a look at what it’s like to race classic racecars day and night at the single most iconic tracks of all times - immortalized by none other than Steve McQueen himself: LE MANS. Its the most brutal endurance test for historic cars and crews.
The second episode shot at the 500KM Marathon on the Germany’s Nürburgring takes one onto the Nordschleife. This is the most complicated track in the world. In the hills, up and down, changing pavements – all together 25km in length with some 80 plus turns. It’s a race of 500 treacherous and dangerous kilometers.
The third episode brings one to Magny Cours, France’s grand prix circuit. Built for formula-one cars, this track makes an interesting playground for historic racers. The Masters Series Festival at Magny Cours is a showdown in sideways drifts with its three-hour endurance race as the main highlight.
The final installment follows the legendary Carrera Panamericana. This is the toughest classic race in the world, spanning seven days and 3,200km through Mexico. Special speed sections feature 550km of closed public roads for full speed racing. The roll-cages are thicker as one sometimes races along the edge of a 500 foot cliff.
