Extreme Speed Motorsports (ESM). Tequila Patrón along with CraveOnline.com have launched a documentary-style online reality show this week called Extreme Speed. This series provides viewers a behind the scenes look of a world-class racing team and an action-packed race weekend.
The eight-episode series launched today (March 11) and can be viewed exclusively at www.craveonline.com/extremespeed. The remaining episodes will launch on CraveOnline every Monday from March 11 through April 29.
Filming for the first episode took place during the 2012 American Le Mans Series (ALMS) presented by Tequila Patrón season, leading up to and including September, 2012’s Grand Prix of Baltimore.
Each of the episodes features the ESM driving team of Scott Sharp, Ed Brown, Johannes van Overbeek and Guy Cosmo. The first episode will highlight the team’s efforts in the ALMS GT-class, with the crowd-favorite No. 01 and No. 02 Tequila Patrón-sponsored Ferrari 458 Italias.
As a recap of the on-track activities, the No. 01 machine driven by Sharp and van Overbeek finished third place during the two-hour sprint race around Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. It was the second street course podium for the team in 2012. The No. 02 machine driven by Brown and Cosmo finished 11th.
Executive producer and director Jim Milio of MPH Entertainment worked with co-producer Robert Lyon to capture the inner workings of ESM during preparations in the Florida-based shop and the excitement of a two-day race weekend in Baltimore.
"The show will provide great exposure for Tequila Patrón but also for our race team. It will give consumers a great inside look into how much goes into the top echelon of motorsports," Brown concluded.
