Besides the occasional interview with The Stig, hot lap around Las Vegas Speedway, or Daytona 500 explosion, we don't get to visit motorsports as often as we'd like here on BroBible. Enter a kick-a*s new video series for lead-footed, adrenaline junkie Bros who love the adventure and thrill of motorsports: The Gentleman’s Guide to Racing. In their own words, the YouTube series chronicles "ene man and his co-pilot doing battle with some of the most cunning open roads in motoring history…and against the gentlemen that feel at home at 140mph."
Armed merely with generous amounts of horsepower and good taste, the GGTR will take its readers on a journey into an unfamiliar world inhabited by a dying breed of gentlemen racers. The Goodwood Festival of Speed, La Carrera Pan Americana, the Targa New Foundland and Pikes Peak are all remarkably challenging races – where the cut of a mans jib is instantly unmistakable.
Unlike track racing – where the pressure of winning and sponsorships interfere with a driver’s ability to be gentlemanly – tarmac racing is a sport in the truest sense. A sport where even the losers want to return to play again. As we tour the world, we will stop in to meet with some of the racing great legends and some of life’s great gentlemen. From acquaintances like Charles Morgan of the Morgan Motorcar company to former F1 Ferrari driver Stefan Johansen, the GGTR will seek out the great lessons and metaphors that also apply to daily life. The passion of racing is within us all. The thrill of speed is rarely misinterpreted and the delicacy of victory is by far the most delectable meal on life’s menu. Without the entrapment of sponsorship and the curfews set by team managers, drivers are free to do battle with the road and create bonds with their fellow racers…a bond usually reserved only for people that have served in uniform together.
The first video in the series is BAJA 1000. It's one hell of an adventure.
