Description: 'Faster' is a documentary, but it doesn't feel like one. It has the energy and intensity of a Hollywood action movie, except that the action and danger are for real. The film the first feature-length documentary to go inside the MotoGP world since television took a sport, watched only by a few thousand spectators at race tracks, and turned it into prime-time entertainment for more than 350 million people worldwide. The MotoGP world championship is the pinnacle of motorcycle sport, a series of 16 races on five continents contested by 24 of the world's top riders. Filmed around the world during the 2001 and 2002 seasons, the movie could be subtitled: 'How do you beat Valentino Rossi?' The 24-year-old Italian, world champion in 2001 and 2002, currently dominates MotoGP. He is the biggest star the sport has ever seen and the charismatic centre of the film. In addition to Rossi, 'Faster' focuses on three other MotoGP riders: Rossi's bitter rival Max Biaggi; the brilliant but injury-prone Garry McCoy; and the rising teenage star John Hopkins. Their stories reveal both the ecstasy and the terror of life in the insanely fast lane, as do the tales told by a supporting cast of former world champions including Mick Doohan, Kevin Schwantz, Wayne Rainey, Kenny Roberts and Barry Sheene. All of this makes 'Faster' much more than a film about the current MotoGP scene. It is the definitive story of motorcycle racing at the highest level and of the handful of men who have what it takes to win.
