The Road to Le Mans: Inside the World’s Oldest Endurance Race

Follow Rolling Stone’s first-ever trip to France’s big race along with Patrón

It sounds inconceivable to the uninitiated: the idea of driving a race car in France for 24 consecutive hours. But Le Mans has been an institution since 1923, and is heralded as the event in endurance racing. "Every driver would trade 20 races a year, just to have one race at Le Mans," Ryan Dalziel of Extreme Speed Motorsports #30 tells us.

This year, Rolling Stone got a taste of the action for ourselves in collaboration with Patrón. And our cameras were on the scene capturing the challenges of preparing our two cars and keeping them (and the drivers) fit and sharp over the day-long race. See how our team handled everything from spin-outs to dehydration to nerves in a short doc that brings one of the world's premiere racing events straight to you.
