Racing Under Green

This Saturday, June 19th, Discovery Channel in Canada will be airing an hour long documentary called "Racing Under Green". The show will feature Winnipeg race car driver, David Richert, as he and other drivers compete in the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup.

Richert was one of only a handful of drivers who were selected to be featured in the documentary. During the 2009 season, the film crew made the trek up to Winnipeg to spend a day with Richert as he took time to visit with local media, harvested the fields, and prepared for an upcoming race.

"It was a blast to have the crew out and show them how I lived life here in Winnipeg. We even lucked out and were able to get them on a combine to take part in the harvest action of southern Manitoba. I've had many people ask what life is like as a race car driver, now is their chance to see."

The documentary follows the drivers as they advance from Volkswagen Driver Selection to competing at some of North America's greatest race tracks. Tune in Saturday, June 19th at 10pm on Discovery Channel's standard definition channel.
