Fassbender’s documentary released today (Thursday)

Published

Michael Fassbender will release the first episode of Series Two of his ‘Road to Le Mans’ online documentary today (Thursday). The series is charting his progress in the European Le Mans Series as he chased his dream to race in the legendary twice-round the clock French race next June.

 

So far this year the local Hollywood A-lister has contested four rounds of the European Le Mans Championship – a direct feeder series to Le Mans – at the wheel of a Proton Competition Porsche 911 GT.

He shares the car with Felipe Laser and former World Endurance Championship LMGTE Pro World Champion Richard Lietz in the endurance races.

So far this year he has raced twice at Paul Ricard in France, once at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium and last weekend he made his Monza, Italy debut.

Additionally, he has contested two Porsche Carrera Cup races, one in the Spanish Grand Prix support race in Barcelona and once at the famous Le Mans track itself.

“Anyone wanting to get to know the person behind the race driver and the race driver behind the person can see first-hand what it means to have a dream and to fight for it by watching the ‘Road to Le Mans’ documentary series: no stunt doubles and just one prop: a race car. A Porsche,” a Porsche spokesperson said. “When you watch Michael Fassbender on the track, follow his development and get to know him as a race driver and a person, you understand how conscientious he is. He meticulously seeks solutions and constantly questions himself, while his progress shows the incredible talent that he is able to unleash again and again.”

His successes and failures will form the back bone of the latest episode of ‘Road to Le Mans’ which will be broadcast on www.porsche.com/roadtolemans.

Last year’s series ran to six episodes and the same is expected this season.

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
