Yes, you really did read that right, a racing team are deciding their driver for the most important race of the season with a reality TV show. Raceto24 will see 24 drivers compete against one another for a chance to drive the Team SARD-Morand Morgan LMP2 cars at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

It’s probably worth pointing out that these are actual racing drivers and not just some happy-go-lucky motorsport fans hoping to get a chance to drive alongside the likes of Mark Webber and Nico Hulkenberg at Le Mans. Drivers include former GP3 drivers, Conor Daly and Dino Zamparelli as well as A1GP (yeah, remember that?) race winner, Jonathan Summerton.

Starting on March 26th the show will see drivers compete in mental and physical challenges before the show hits the race track, with the finalists driving one of the team’s BMW V8 powered LMP2 cars.

Like all shit good reality TV shows there is of course a judging panel which includes team boss, Benoit Morand and former Formula One driver, Christian Klien.
