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.
