'FASTER' set for Hollywood premiere and DVD release

The MotoGP movie ‘FASTER' is growing in both popularity and availability around the world as word spreads about the action-packed documentary, which is now set for its Hollywood debut and DVD release. ‘FASTER', which was filmed during the 2001 and 2002 MotoGP World Championship seasons, was recently picked up for distribution on the big screen by Slamdance On The Road, and will be at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood on Friday, April 23rd through to Thursday, April 29th.

Opening night will feature a pre-screening reception at 7:00 pm, and, following the 7:30 screening, a live interview with the filmmakers as well as MotoGP legend Kevin Schwantz and AMA Superbike star Eric Bostrom. Additional upcoming openings are scheduled for April 24th at Fort Lauderdale in Florida and the Taos Vision Quest Film Festival on April 29th & 30th in Sacramento, California. News of other bookings can be found at the official website of the movie, www.fastermovie.com.

Narrated by rider and international movie star Ewan McGregor, FASTER features today's top riders, including Valentino Rossi and his archrival Maxi Biaggi and rising star John Hopkins. FASTER also features a raft of former World Champions who have shaped the way racing is done today, along with the Clinica Mobile's Doctor Costa and expert journalists who have charted the history of the sport.

On June 1st a Special Preview Edition DVD of the movie, which includes footage from the 2003 Cannes Film Festival, where director Mark Neale and Ewan McGregor led a procession of MotoGP riders including Loris Capirossi, Colin Edwards, Alex Hoffman, John Hopkins and Valentino Rossi, will go on sale in the United States. The disc will be sold for $24.95 (plus S&H), exclusively through the movie's website.
