Top Gear-presenter Chris Harris made his Blancpain GT Series debut this year, at the wheel of the Team Parker Bentley Continental GT3. In the YouTube-series ‘Chris Harris Drives’ the presenter takes a look at the biggest challenge of the year, the Total 24 Hours of Spa.
"This was my first 24 Hours of Spa. From the Tuesday afternoon that I arrived at the circuit to the Sunday the race finished, it was a lesson in attrition and karma. Five days I won’t forget in a hurry. The Total 24 Hours of Spa is both a stand-alone race and a round of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup I’ve been competing in all year with Team Parker Racing, in a Bentley Continental GT3. There are three separate championships, Pro, Pro-Am and Am – I’m classed as an amateur and have raced with two other amateur drivers all year. At Monza, Silverstone and Paul Ricard we were the fastest car/driver partnership, but some errors and bad luck left us with very few points to show for our potential pace."

Go behind the scenes as he and the team take you through just how much of a herculean effort the Total 24 Hours of Spa is.
