MANILA, Philippines – Stunt doubles and computer-animated visual effects aside, DRIVEN TO EXTREMES is the ultimate driving challenging pitting A-list Hollywood actors, top motorsport racers and their cars against some of the most hostile places on earth; the coldest, hottest and wettest. Part endurance test and part travelogue, DRIVEN TO EXTREMES sees Academy Award winner, Adrien Brody, British actor, Tom Hardy, and action hero, Henry Cavill take on the harshest terrains together with former Finnish Formula One driver, Mika Salo, and former British and world superbike champion, Neil Hodgson.
From a plummeting minus 50 degrees Celsius in freezing Russia, to over 50 degrees Celsius in sweltering China and the exceptionally wet Malaysian jungle at the height of the monsoon season, DRIVEN TO EXTREMES will push these celebrity petrol heads and their cars, to the limit. Be prepared to get DRIVEN TO EXTREMES every Wednesday at 8:00 p.m., starting March 13. Encores every Monday at 9:00 a.m. and Thursday at 3:00 p.m.
A three-part series sponsored by Shell, DRIVEN TO EXTREMES flags off in Russia where the lowest temperatures to have ever been recorded was in Oymyakon at an inconceivable minus 70 degrees Celsius. Thrill seekers Tom and Mika are about to embark on what seems to be the toughest road trip imaginable; from Yakutsk, the coldest city on the planet, to Oymyakon, the coldest inhabited place on Earth. And the only way to get there by car? Across the 1,260-mile M56 Kolyma Highway, also known as the Road of Bones. Built by Gulag prisoners during the Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin era, this lethal frost-covered track is only passable during winter when the rivers are frozen over. With layers of rock hard ice, unlit wilderness, tyre-ripping paths and temperatures so cold it might freeze the car engine, Tom and Mika have their work cut out.
The DRIVEN TO EXTREMES adventure continues in China where Henry and Neil take on the vast, untouched and wild Taklamakan Desert, also known as the Desert of Death. With temperatures at an engine-busting 50 degrees Celsius and sand storms at speeds of up to 100 miles an hour, the duo must work hand-in-hand to cross over 470 miles of the largest shifting sand desert in the world – from Hami to Urumqi – where water is as scarce as the signs of life. One mistake and they will be stranded; one misjudgment of speed and the car may roll; among these scorching dunes, there will be no helicopters to rescue them.
DRIVEN TO EXTREMES then heads to Malaysia where Adrien and Mika take on one of roughest jungle trails in the world, at the height of the monsoon season. The pair will attempt to cross the 16-mile Ulu Sedili trail, northeast Johor, where countless dangers await in the feral undergrowth and rivers, before a 124-mile drive to the village of Kampong Peta. Locals know that the route destroys gears boxes, rips out radiators and tears apart tires, but the real danger is the weather. During the monsoon season, unsuspecting rain showers can turn into deadly flash floods within minutes. Packed with a ton of gripping action, DRIVEN TO EXTREMES pushes human endurance to the limit and leaves these A-list car enthusiasts and daredevils with nothing but their instincts, expertise, skills, knowledge, persistence and cars to conquer these unforgiving terrains. Catch all the action, highs and lows on the following episodes of DRIVEN TO EXTREMES:
