Plot Synopsis

In this four-part series, Golden Globe-winning and Emmy Award-nominated actor and producer Idris Elba pushes his body, mind and engineering know-how to the limit by racing on land, water and in the air. Idris immerses himself in rally driving, street racing, aerobatics and power boating to master not only the discipline of racing, but also the engineering, science and history behind it. He joins professional teams, takes on seemingly impossible challenges, receives coaching by some of the world's leading drivers and pilots and meets fellow speed freaks to share their secrets of how to get every last ounce of power out of his machines. Each episode starts with Idris visiting a renowned motor sport competition, shot on locations across Florida, California and the British Isles, that inspires his mission to take on some of the toughest racing disciplines in the world. To push his car, plane or boat to the utter limit, Idris gets under the bonnet and miles under his belt to prepare for the big race day that will see him go head to head with the professionals. Discovery aired the U.S. premiered of this series on Monday, July 4, 2016 from 7-11pm ET/PT, showing all four episodes back-to-back.
