Paul Rudd Drayson's resignation from his post as Minister for Defence Procurement was even more controversial than his 2005 appointment to the post. A highly qualified and very successful businessman; in 2003 he sold his innovative Powderject business for almost £600 million - about £80 million of which is estimated to have gone to him personally. The 47-year-old then became a major contributor to Labour party funds, a working peer entitled Baron Drayson of Kensington and a Government Minister - in that order. But Lord Drayson had a dream that was nothing to do with business or politics. He wanted to race in the most glamorous, prestigious and historic race in the world - the 24 hours of Le Mans.
This gripping series shows how even partially sighted and with a car running on green bio ethanol fuel Drayson finally achieved his dream. What to know what it's like to drive in the most famous long distance race in motor sport. License to Le Mans is the nearest thing to the real thing.
