Sacrificing it all for the 24 Hours of Le Mans

BY Samuel Reiman • June 16, 2017

When we’re young, many of us aspire to be racing drivers. It seems like such a glamorous profession with no drawbacks.

Of course, the reality is that for even those of us that are successful - the journey isn’t all fast cars and champagne.

Andy Priaulx is a 42-year-old British racing driver who will race the No. 67 Ford GT at this weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. Priaulx, however, is also a husband and father of two - who were both born dangerously prematurely.

Praiulx’s racing career has resulted in a lot of time away from his family, as he explains in this video from Castrol EDGE SUPERCAR.

Following along with Priaulx, Castrol EDGE SUPERCAR gives us a first-hand account at just what extra steps and sacrifices drivers have to go through when getting ready for one of greatest motor races on the planet.

The video is the part of a series from Castrol EDGE SUPERCAR that intends to uncover the stories of sporting icons from across the world.
