Did you watch Le Mans on TV this year? If you did you were one of only around 100,000 people in the UK who bothered with Eurosport’s round-the-clock coverage of one of the world’s most demanding sporting contests. Whether you missed this particularly epic edition of the 24 hour classic or not, you simply must watch Audi’s superb summary of the drama of Le Mans 2011 that goes by the not-so-snappy title of 13,854 seconds.
This is like the superb Truth in 24 documentary also made by Audi, just a little shorter. It’s a cracking snapshot of racing at it’s most physically – and emotionally – demanding. The production values are top-notch too, it’s well worth watching whether you like motorsport or not.
