In real estate, the three most important things are location, location, location. In motorsports, it's preparation, preparation, preparation. Le Mans is only a few days away and the Pratt & Miller team has put together a five-part series examining what they do to get the Corvette C6.R ready to win its class.

The first episode is called "The Prep." You quickly find out that work on this year's race began at the end of last year's race, and that you need 12 months of getting ready because once you're trackside, "You can't go back." You'll find the short yet packed video by scrolling down.

*UPDATE: Pratt & Miller has just uploaded the second video in this series, The Team. You can watch it by scrolling below.
