This hard hitting series offers a group of young, convicted car criminals with no sense of direction the chance of a lifetime: to say goodbye to crime, train as mechanics and form a race team under the pupillage of Formula One boss Eddie Jordan.

As they attempt to go from chequered past to chequered flag, Eddie starts questioning his initial enthusiasm for the project: can he turn them into a race team to be proud of, or are they already beyond help?
