The 45-year-old NFL legend was in France and shared his experiences at the event on Instagram.

Brady posted a series of pictures he took with the entire Hertz team with a hilarious caption in which he makes fun of himself.

He even hinted that he wanted to get behind the wheel:

“See, I was never known for my speed, I couldn’t overtake nose tackles, so I went to Le Mans to try a different sport and see what it felt like to overtake someone.”

LeBron James' response to Kyrie Irving revealed after he was asked to join Dallas

“I’m still hiding in the back of the garage and will try to get in the car at the next stop. When you see this beauty upside down, you know whose fault it was.”

James, 38, had the honor of waving the starting flag for this year’s event.

He kicked off the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

But in true “King” fashion, James said it in French, not English, and fans were quick to flock to Twitter with jokes and praise.

A third commented: “Michael Jordan never did that. Stand up LeBron nation, let’s be proud.”

And a fourth: “LeMans James?”

Ferrari’s F1 driver Charles LeClerc and actor Patrick Dempsey were also at the race.
