Sportscar Racing Doc "The Gentleman Driver" speeds home to Netflix

90-Minute Documentary About Four Extraordinary Businessmen Moonlighting as Sports-Car Drivers Set for Debut on Netflix Today

Enter a world of high-level businessmen and highest-level sportscar racing when THE GENTLEMAN DRIVER speeds home to NETFLIX today. Executive produced by Toni Calderon and Speed Group, this 90-minute documentary offers a thrilling inside look at the lives of four extraordinary businessmen and sportscar drivers who work hard and race even harder. 

The film features the FIA World Endurance Championship, IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship, and the European Le Mans Series.
Unlike the worlds of professional football or soccer, where a non-professional can’t buy his way into playing in the Super Bowl or World Cup, the world of sportscar racing has a long-standing tradition of allowing world-class businessmen to pay to compete in top racing events like the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

This film shines a spotlight on four such “Gentlemen Drivers”: Ed Brown, President and CEO of Patron Spirits Inc.; Ricardo Gonzalez, Chairman of the Board of ASUCQ; Mike Guasch, CEO Molecule Labs; and Paul Dalla Lana, CEO of NorthWest Value Partners Inc.

Join these high-level businessmen as they strap themselves in behind the wheels of the world’s most technologically-advanced race cars to participate in the exhilarating and often dangerous world of international sportscar racing. Watch as they steer a perilous course riddled with obstacles, including facing down negative stereotypes about what it means to be a “Gentleman Driver.” Yet, through dedication, passion, and skill, success always seems to magically follow these men.

To help demystify this phenomenon, THE GENTLEMAN DRIVER features expert interviews on the subjects of success, flow, and sports psychology. It also offers viewers rare access to behind-the-scenes racing environs like the pit garages, personal conversations with the drivers and crew, and tours with the “Gentlemen Driver” CEOs at their places of work. The documentary also incorporates gripping race-track broadcasts and in-car action-cam footage.

With its privileged insights into the worlds of high-level motorsports and high-level business, THE GENTLEMAN DRIVER is sure to both entertain and inspire higher levels of achievement as it reveals time-tested principles and practices for being successful on and off the track.
