'Behind Bars: The Movie’ premieres at Motorcycle Live

Posted on


Motorcycle Live 2013 will be home to a brand-new feature giving visitors an exclusive insight into the lives of some of Britain’s top racing stars.

Behind Bars – The Movie is a FREE must-see, 30-minute fly-on-the-wall film that will be shown in a specially-constructed bike theatre with cinema-style seats, visuals and acoustics.

The life of a professional motorcycle racer is a tough and unforgiving existence – a life where even the smallest mistake can result in paying the ultimate price. Behind Bars – The Movie provides a no holds barred look at what it takes to live that life, and what makes our racing heroes heroes.

The movie features 20-time Isle of Man TT winner John McGuinness, 2013 World Superbike Champion Tom Sykes, 2013 World Supersport Champion Sam Lowes, 2013 British Superbike Champion Alex Lowes, 2013 Speedway World Champion Tai Woffinden, Moto2 star Scott Redding, World Motocross rider Tommy Searle and three-time British Superbike Champion Shane ‘Shakey’ Bryne.

Behind Bars – The Movie visits the stars at their homes, meets their loved ones, travels with them to races and finds out what it feels like to brush kerbs at 200mph, rub plastics with their fellow pros, hit rutted 70ft double jumps flat out and – ultimately – stand on the top step of the podium showering champagne on their adoring fans.

The movie will be shown at the following times:

Friday, Saturdays and Sundays: 11.00am, 12.15pm 1.45pm, 3.15pm, 4.45pm  Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday: 11.30am 1.30pm 2.45pm, 4.00pm

Back by popular demand is the FREE Nick Sanders Steampunk Cinema which will this year be housed in a newly-built film cube with two super-large 70 inch TV screens showing two three-minute films every half-hour. Sound effects will be awesome and the whole thing will give off the appearance of being driven by steam. An experience not to miss!
