We all love the sport of motor racing and enjoy all the thrills, spills, and spectacles that come along with it. But for every one of those racing teams to field competitive race cars, there’s a lot of behind-the-scenes preparations that go on to ensure that these races are as action-packed as possible.

In this video, we take a look at the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East and turn to one team that’s set to compete in the series. Lechner Racing is one of those teams and team principal, Walter Lechner, takes us on a four-minute look at what happens in the crucial days leading up to the green light.

From bringing the Porsche cars in trucks, emptying them, parking them in specifically-allocated garages, and everything that goes on afterwards, Lechner describes the painstaking job that goes on in preparing for a race and how this preparation manifests itself in time for qualifying and the race itself.

The Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East consists of 12 rounds of racing spread out across the Middle East. Since it’s inception in 2009, the series has already established itself as one of the best one-make series in the region and going on its third season, the competition is set to become as hot as the weather in that part of the world.
