MIAMI (July 24, 2015) - Motorsport.com and Tequila Patrón ESM announce its partnership in the worldwide distribution of the race documentary, “Vitesse Extreme – Le Mans,” presented by Motorsport.com.

Filmed entirely at the 83rd 24 Hours of Le Mans last June, “Vitesse Extreme – Le Mans” is produced by seven-time Emmy award-winning producer Robert Lyon, and will take viewers inside the world of the lone two-car American team in the LMP2 class at the famous Circuit de la Sarthe. The race documentary includes behind the scenes footage from scrutineering, practices, fan activities and on-track race action.

Debuting a pair of Tequila Patrón ESM No. 30 and No. 31 Rolling Stone Ligier JS P2 Hondas, the Tequila Patrón ESM team competed for the first time at Le Mans earning two top-10 finishes at the twice-around-the-clock race.

Known as the world’s oldest active endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans is the most prestigious event in sports car racing. The event featured 56 entries on the grueling 8.4667-mile (13.6259 km) circuit, which was a combination of closed public roads and a permanent racing circuit, in France.

The global leader of motorsport news and features, Motorsport.com is one of the fastest growing motorsports digital platforms in the world providing worldwide, multimedia coverage resulting in over 180 countries this year.

Motorsport.com was the obvious choice to partner with because of their worldwide digital platform,” said Scott Sharp, Tequila Patrón ESM driver and owner. “Racing at Le Mans was a tremendous achievement for everyone at Tequila Patrón ESM and Rolling Stone.

We’re proud of what we accomplished at Le Mans and this race documentary is the type of premium content that Tequila Patrón ESM, Rolling Stone and Motorsport.com like to provide to fans worldwide,” he added.

The race documentary highlights our partnership with Rolling Stone on one of the world’s largest motorsports online media portfolios and will allow fans all across the world an opportunity to get a first-hand look at historic Le Mans.”

How overlooked Mazda produced one of Le Mans' greatest shocks

The screaming rotary-engined Mazda 787 is regarded as one of the most popular Le Mans 24 Hours-winning cars, but until its surprise success on this day 30 years ago it was never regarded as a likely victor. But that reckoned without a new technical partner, some canny political manoeuvring and a rival's bizarre self-inflicted weakness.
