Eric Bana – a big fan of Troy

Eric Bana admitted he was a big fan of Troy when visiting the Cinzano Australian Grand Prix last Sunday, but the Hollywood actor wasn't talking about the latest box-office smash movie in which he stars alongside Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom.

Instead, the Australian had made his regular pilgrimage from his hometown of Melbourne to Phillip Island to see his compatriot, Marlboro Ducati star Troy Bayliss, in action in the penultimate round of the MotoGP World Championship.

Bana, who also starred in the movies ‘Hulk' and ‘Black Hawk Down', admitted that MotoGP was a "bit of an obsession" and revealed that he even takes to the Phillip Island circuit on his own motorcycle when he is not filming.
