Michael Fassbender detailed his passion for motor sports, saying he always felt “called to it”, in the new short documentary series.
The X-Men actor, who is a great circuit racer, spent 2019 racing at the Porsche Sports Cup Germany.
Shorts, directed by his childhood friend Marco Conte, documented his first race in front of the crowd at home in 2019 at the Rally of the Lakes in Killarney, Co Kerry, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the event.
They followed him from the initial recce in a rental car around the winding stage, until he took his first rally course.
Fassbender said: “All of my early memories are around the car, it’s an addictive hobby. I always feel called to it.
“Taking the angle, if the rear wheel drops from the gravel, it starts moving and starts sliding, it really scares me. My first partner must remind myself to breathe. “
The 2020 rally was canceled due to the coronavirus crisis and Fassbender said he wanted to celebrate the event and a community close to his heart.
He said: “I hope that people will enjoy this film and find ways to support local events that mean a lot to them during these uncertain times.
“This is for the next 40 years from the Rally of the Lakes.”
The first part of the film is available for viewing on Fassbender’s profile on the Vero social network.
Part two will be released on May 19 and part three will be released on May 26.
All three sections will be available on the Vass Fassbender profile afterwards.
