Ewan McGregor enjoys his ride down La Croisette

Hollywood film star Ewan McGregor, narrator of the MotoGP movie `Faster´ said he had `never had such a good ride down La Croissette´ in all his life, after riding to the film´s premiere down the famous French boulevard flanked by some of the world´s best racers. The Scottish actor was joined by John Hopkins (who plays a major part in the film), Valentino Rossi, Colin Edwards, Loris Capirossi, Olivier Jacque, Garry McCoy and Alex Hofmann on a parade into the heart of the Cannes Film Festival and he revealed to motograndprix.com why he was so pleased to be a part of the film.

`It was fantasic!´ said McGregor, a life long motorcycle enthusiast. `I managed to overheat the Honda because we were doing so many burn outs on the way down… [`Faster´] is a really beautiful film. I am hoping it does very well and I hope it gets a distributor so that is seen in the cinema because I think motorcycle racing is so exciting and on a big screen it will blow people away.´
