Jack up a car, change four tyres, fill the gas tank, check the oil, wipe the windows and get the car back on the road – all in under 17 seconds. Impossible? Perhaps for an average person, but not for a member of a professional racing pit crew. Discovery Turbo takes viewers inside the world of the pit crews.
Pit Crews will air every Tuesday at 9.30 p.m. on Discovery Turbo. The episodes will repeat every Saturday at 8 p.m.
A pit stop is one of the most exciting and crucial segments of any race. With the margin of victory in auto racing measured in tenths and hundreds of seconds, a good pit crew makes the definitive difference in a nail-bitingly close race.. Though Pit crews get very little credit and hardly ever get the chance to stand on the podium, these dedicated individuals are an integral part of every victory and superb athletes in their own right.
From the American Motorcycle Association races and the Offshore Super Series Powerboat Racing to the Montreal Supercross and Stock Car Auto Racing, buckle up as Discovery Turbo takes you into the heart of these incredibly intense, challenging, and adrenaline-driven environments to experience the rush on Pit Crews.
