It’s hot, claustrophobic and timing is everything.
In the driver’s seat of a racecar, decisions are made on the fly, tempers flare and the winner is the driver who can keep his cool.

It’s hot, claustrophobic and timing is everything.
On the front line of the commercial restaurant kitchen, decisions are made on the fly, tempers flare and the winner is the chef who can keep his cool.

In Chefs At The Wheel, we will find out which chefs can harness their competitive drive and passion for excellence in the kitchen and translate it to the rough-hewn surface of the racetrack.
Each week we will follow a chef as he/she flies to a race venue, works with professional driving instructors and races in an actual road course track race.

Some will be natural competitors on the track. Others will have a huge learning curve.

As with all competitive endeavors, success in one field may not translate to success in another. Ego and skill must find balance on the track, lest the driver find himself in the wall and out of the race.
Before the race, each celebrity chef will then work in a remote trackside kitchen. Alongside fellow racecar driver and racing aficionado, tv/radio personality and chef Mario Martinoli and Chef / Porsche Performance Driving Instructor, Kristina-Michelle Kelly, they will create a seasonal menu and meal, the fruits of which will be enjoyed by the racetrack crew and a celebrity guest.

The weekly challengers will compete for prize money to be donated to a chosen charity, and then compete against one another in a season finale race, where a champion will be crowned at the “Winner’s Circle To The Family Table” Charity Banquet.


In addition, the season champion will be invited back to participate in the next season and receive an automatic bid to the successive season finale races.

Chefs At The Wheel combines the excitement of racing and the passion of cooking, while highlighting the competitive camaraderie of racers and chefs alike. Join us as we travel from the winner’s circle to the family table and bring you the quintessential competition food show.
