Anyone who likes motorsports or sports movies involving great teamwork will love this artfully shot document from 2008.

Directed by Keith Cossrow and Bennett Visltear, the film follows the factory Audi Le Mans prototype team as it stumbles through the 12 Hours of Sebring and the 1000km of Monza. The focus then shifts to competing in the storied Le Mans 24, illustrating the buildup to the race and the ultimate result of the race.

Jason Statham is the film’s narrator. Many Audi drivers and key team members are interviewed throughout, including Allan McNish, Dindo Capello, and Tom Kristensen, who eventually win the race.

Tom Stahler is the Managing Editor of the ClassicCars.com Journal. Tom has a lifelong love of cars and motor racing – beginning with the 1968 USRRC race at Road America, in a stroller, at eight months of age. His words, photos and broadcasts can can be found on a myriad of media. He has won the Motor Press Guild’s Dean Batchelor Award and a Gold Medal in the International Automotive Media Awards.
