They should enter him for Daytona (don't they still allow 4-5 man crews or something ridiculous) and see if he can manage it in GT3 Porsche or whatever

Or some off season Creventic

Anyway I'm sure ACO will grant him entry regardless of what's achieved because he's too big of a name to miss. It's not like they care about their own driver categorizations anyway (waiver-Hedman in LMP1 etc). I guess the only way he wouldn't get in would be if he didn't pass the ACO simulator test for Le Mans, but from what I've heard that's pretty much impossible not to pass with flying colors

Just direct comparison with McQueen in all aspects. He was absolutely on par with racing drivers of his generation when racing was a superbly dangerous hobby. Definitely had a charisma. Lots of people are dreaming of getting a green Mustang only because of a certain film and a certain actor. I don't know anybody who want to buy a car just because Dempsey is driving it in any video he was filmed.

Perhaps that is true but in the time of Bullet the films of people (stars) racing cars was very limited and a the amount of actual racing you could see on TV/Film was pretty small. Now days you can watch anything anytime and it will never have the impact it once did. However we will see want effect the new Le mans 66 film has, sportscar racing could certainly do with a lift in popularity at the moment.

These Fassbender episodes are getting 500-700k views on Porsche's youtube while most of their other videos are just 10-50k. If you want a brand ambassador, having a celebrity is your best bet for visibility

Off topic of the thread, but had to mention, saw this film the other day and thought it was phenomenal!

Maybe he'll merge with Dempsey-Proton to form Dempsey-Fassbender-Proton Competition. Or you have Dempsey-Proton WEC cars and Fassbender-Proton ELMS cars... Celebrity Extravaganza

He did visit their garage at LM last year too

SnoodyMcFlude should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Watched all of these this morning. He seems to put a lot of pressure on himself and then make silly mistakes, seemed like every weekend had an avoidable accident or stupid issue in the pits.

The improvement is marked though, whether part of that is down to editing or just having an awesomely talented team of coaches and engineers.
