A VIDEO SERIES CREATED BY ANDY PILGRIM AND Automobile

Pro Racer’s Take draws from a wildly wide selection of vehicles for our championship-winning sports-car racing driver, Andy Pilgrim, to take to the limit. From the quickest, most capable production performance cars on the planet to wagons and SUVS, Andy reviews each vehicle—and extracts its maximum performance potential around the extremely challenging and fast 3.2-mile, 23 turn, NCM Motorsports Park “Handling House” road course in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The results are always thrilling and entertaining—and oftentimes surprising.
