Forza Motorsports and Gran Turismo have nothing on this.
Anyone that says a racecar driver is not an athlete is ignorant. Drivers are subjected to tremendous forces during races and must remain focused at all times or risk losing a race. Endurance races are even harder on teams and drivers, lasting up to 25 hours at a time and pushing man and machine to its limits.
Leh Keen of Brumos Racing strapped on a camera and gave everyone an insider’s look at the 50th Anniversary of the Rolex 24 at Daytona endurance race from the plane ride to the post-race festivities.
To say that a professional driver’s life is exhausting and hectic is nothing short of true as Led Keen shows us what drivers go through before, during, and after the Rolex 24 at Daytona. The camera is with him step by step as he goes behind the wheel of the No. 59 Brumos Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup for testing and his stints during the race. Leh Keen and the Brumos Racing team achieved a third place podium finish in the competitive GT class. Thankfully, Keen was able to capture the celebration that the team earned with their impressive finish.
