Default LeMans 2019

Two weeks and a day before the great race. I am watching a series on LeMans on Amazon Prime. If you like racing, watch this series. If you race, you should love it and want to immediately get in your race car.

I will be sure to check it out. If it’s anywhere near as good as the F1 series on Netflix it will be a real treat.

Is there any relation to the movie with McQueen (which is not as good as people want it to be IMO).

Not that I can figure out. This is a documentary that follows a few teams as they prepare for and execute the race.

I started watching it and it's quite addictive. Thanks for the recommendation

How can a movie that has Porsche 917Ks literally traveling at >240 mph not be good?

Because it's the only thing it has. There's no storytelling, no dialogue, no tension. It's a bunch of home video footage from the race.

Compare it to something like day of thunder or rush, those have a story to tell and that makes a massive difference.

I'm a massive fan of McQueen and of racing.

PS: the picture is great and the car is stunning
