Speed is a universal language, and how we achieve it can differ from country to country and culture to culture. But no matter the race or the stakes involved, it all comes down to that extra mile per hour or extra RPM - whatever it takes to shave a second off our time and make us faster than the last guy. We go behind the driver's seat and profile the personalities who push the limits to end up on the podium at the world's most iconic motorsports events. We are not a sports show. Race results always take a backseat to the story behind the story. Our focus is on the racer's journey in getting to the event, the behind-the-scenes drama of the high-speed competition leading up to the race itself.
