Michael Fassbender Road to Le Mans

I stumbled on this, by which I mean Youtube's algorithms sent it my way. Anyone paying attention?

Just watched the first one. So I've not picked up on this - is there a plan to put him in a car at Le Mans?

I would be thinking Porsche would have some type of plan to get him into a GT Am car. I too just watched the first episode and it appears the car hes driving in Porsche Sports Cup Germany in some type of factory supported entry.

I enjoyed him being brutally frank about what happened out on track especially the opening scene. Would rather watch something like that then some polished PR piece where stuff like that is smoothed over.

Hope he makes it to LM.

If it was good enough for McQueen and Newman to race sportscars, in real life as well as in the movies, it's good enough for Fassbender, I wish him well

Few years back I watched a couple of Ferrari Challenge NA support races for Daytona 24 in which he took part, he wasn't too bad at all. He won't have Patrick Dempsey PR factor in France but still a celebrity that'll turn some heads

Personally I find him to be the best of all the actors already mentioned. Would he not be a bigger star than Dempsey seeing as how he's in the Alien and X-Men movies???

Got the chance to meet him a few years ago when he was racing at COTA. He was friendly enough. Also a pleasant surprise that his super hot girlfriend was there as well.

So the fourth ep is out part of which sees him testing a Proton 991 RSR (not the latest mid engine version) around Adria and it appears he comes to grips with it better then the Cup Car.

RSR is easier to drive than a Cup car. Although the don't show his pace in it relative to anyone else. I've watched the episodes and think he's doing a great job -- hopefully he keeps digging and working at it.

Michael who? I thought that Mr.Dempsey's GTE-Am achievements have convinced everyone that actors' calibre is not solid as it used to be once.

I think I've always agreed with every post you've written to this forum, until now

Full playlist (all episodes so far):

His two partial season the Ferrari Challene NA and this season in the German Club Sport series doesn't sound like enough experience for an Am entry yet.

So I think at this point the title of the series is just a title.
