Nineteen icons who need speed when out of the spotlight
Sometimes the limelight just isn't enough. Indeed, the adrenaline rush of getting behind the wheel and putting one's driving skills to the test is what many out there long for — regardless if one's reached celebrity status or not. Leonardo DiCaprio, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, George Lucas, and AC/DC's Brian Johnson, just to name a few, are celebrities who've incoporated pro racing into their lives in a big way. Some, have even proven they can be just as effective (or even moreso) on the track than in the spotlight (Paul Newman, for example, came second in 1979's Le Mans 24 Hours and first at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1995).
With this gallery, we pay tribute to the big names who are smitten with the racing machine.
