Directed by Virginie and Augustin Dulauroy. Pindare Films is proud to present the upcoming docu-series DO SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY, directed and produced by Virginie and Augustin Dulauroy.  This motorsport docu-series charts the story of Gabe Tesch, an 18-year-old racing driver and brain cancer survivor in his attempt to do something extraordinary and climb to the top of the motorsport ladder!  Virginie Dulauroy is a well-recognized film director in the motorsport world. This series takes you on and off the track to learn about Gabe’s life, his battle against brain cancer, and his journey to become a racing driver.  “I survived a 48-day radiation treatment cycle, followed by 48 weeks of chemotherapy for brain cancer. I am not simply a childhood cancer survivor… I am a racing driver!” Gabe Tesch. On February 24th, Gabe left his home, flying to the UK to begin his racing career and compete in the 2022 British Formula Ford Championship. "Racing Formula Ford in Europe and following in the footsteps of so many legendary F1 drivers, is a dream come true." Gabe Tesch.  Season 1 of the series follows Gabe on his racing journey in the UK. Get to know him personally and look back to learn about his disease and recovery. Experience the demanding and emotional world of motorsport through the eyes of this young man. See his training to become an athlete, the challenges of finding sponsors, and much more.  Wear Gabe’s helmet and understand what it takes to become a professional racing driver. “God did not get me through cancer just to survive, but to show me I am meant to do something extraordinary! We all are!” Gabe Tesch's “Do Something Extraordinary " is not only a motorsport series, it is the story of a child who overcame cancer, the story of an entire family. This is an authentic human story.” Virginie Dulauroy. ”I hope this story will inspire people, just like it inspires me. Each one of us can achieve what we aim for as long as we want it deeply enough. I believe that fighting cancer gave Gabe the strength to pursue a racing driver career. He could have wanted to become an astronaut, an olympian or whatever. The most important is not where he goes but what he does to achieve his dream.” Augustin Dulauroy. "This story will inspire other young people, as well as families and individuals that are fighting against life’s challenges" Virginie adds: “The series will give hope to kids in the hospital, the series will give strength to families in difficulties. As a mum, I felt personally drawn into this story to tell.” Do Something Extraordinary is not only a racing story.  It is a human story that anyone can relate to in their own life. Highs and lows, victories and defeats.
