Nominated for an Oscar, the documentary portrayed the riding lives of hotshot motorcycle racers of the early 1970s. Directed by Bruce Brown, it was produced by Steve McQueen who also appears in the film, along with champions and rookies from desert racing, short-circuit competition and moto-cross.

David Aldana, Don Emde, Mert Lawwill and Gene Romero not only found fame on the big screen but also participated in the massively popular Anglo-American Match Races, held in the UK in the 1970s at circuits such as Brands Hatch, Mallory Park and Oulton Park. Show-goers can expect to see the stars interviewed on stage and there’s usually an opportunity to secure a precious autograph or two.
