With Ferrari dominating the Le Mans racetrack for years, two men must work together to develop a Ford race car capable of beating the Italians and claiming glory in the toughest race of all: 24 Hours of Le Mans.

As the starting French Tricolour of Le Mans looms closer, though, they’re competing against more than just their unbeatable opposition. Facing personal feuds with bosses at Ford, their place on the team hangs in the balance.

The all-star duo must battle their way into the driver’s seat of the project if they’re to have any chance of claiming glory in the greatest racing rivalry of al
