Sure, Beau Bor­ders is a suc­cess­ful fea­ture film mixer and sound edi­tor. But he also hap­pens to be a pro­fes­sional race­car driver.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Beau is a Sound Mix­ing Acad­emy Award nom­i­nee for his work on Lone Sur­vivor. He has col­lab­o­rated on huge, block­buster films like Titanic, Lord of the Rings, and Trans­form­ers. And he also dri­ves badass cars (like his BMW M3) at crazy high speeds, boast­ing con­sis­tent National and US Majors Tour wins in the highly com­pet­i­tive For­mula Mazda series.

As a Pro Sound Effects client and Hybrid Library Owner, Beau made this hilar­i­ous video for us using the PSE Library. His sound design com­ple­ments footage shot dur­ing his recent US Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship race at Laguna Seca in Cal­i­for­nia with his team, Life’s Good Racing.
