Factual entertainment UHD channel Insight TV has commissioned a four-part series set to immerse viewers into the heart of the action of one of the world’s toughest endurance races.
Endurance: 24 Hours of Spa (4 x 44 minutes) will pull the curtain back on the Total 24 Hours of Spa, a seven-kilometer automotive endurance race held annually in Belgium at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. The 70th edition takes place on July 28 in the town of Francorchamps and is the highlight of the Blancpain GT Series and the Intercontinental GT Challenge.
The series will document the successes and trials that the drivers and teams face during the world-class 24-hour challenge. It will be accompanied by additional 6 x 11-minute profiles of various competing teams. Featured will be drivers from six leading teams, including Bentley Team M-Sport, Garage 59, Emil Frey Lexus Racing and Strakka Racing.
Each episode of Endurance: 24 Hours of Spa will tackle a theme or topic relevant to specific stages of the race, including the history of endurance racing and technology used; race strategies and inspirations; pit crew cohesion and dynamics; psychology of endurance racing; and the final hours of the event.
“This is a spectacular race that sees top drivers from all over the world vie for one of the most prestigious trophies that the motor racing world has to offer,” said Frank le Mair, executive producer at Insight TV, in a statement. “It’s a challenging show to produce in an environment where tensions are high and the narrative is constantly changing. We plan to get under the skin of these teams and drivers to find out what it takes to compete at this dangerous level.”
