The 24 Hours of Le Mans is a race like no other and the most elite endurance motorsport race in the world. Taking place in France each year, it is an endurance test for drivers and cars that takes a full day to complete. With unprecedented access to six of the best-in-class teams, high-tech cars, and professional drivers, this mini-series travels to team shops and test tracks around the globe to look at preparations in the run-up to the 2015 event. It then covers the highs and lows of the race to provide and in-depth look at those who put it all on the line for glory in what's known as "the Mount Everest of motorsports."
I like the race 24h of Le Mans very much and I am happy they did this series about it. But, what is really strange is how they made it about the legendary endurance race and did not include the nine time winner (a record by far) over seventeen years of Le Mans career, gentleman with the nickname "Mr. Le Mans" - Danish driver Tom Kristensen. Without him and what he has to say on the matter - it is just not interesting as is should be, especially for the audience which is following the race from year to year. Imagine what he might have contributed. Sorry - not good enough.
