A host of British Superbike stars turned out for the eagerly anticipated world premiere of the I,Superbiker movie this week.
Reigning champion Ryuichi Kiyonari joined championship rivals and stars from the film Tommy Hill, James Ellison, Gary Mason and Josh Brookes, at the Empire in London's Leicester Square, for a special screening.
The high-octane documentary intimately follows British hope, Hill, whose parents have sacrificed their home, holidays and finances to support his burning ambition to be Britain's number one superbike rider. Alongside the Swan Yamaha rider, 'I, Superbiker' reveals the highs and lows of fellow racers, Ellison, Brookes and Mason, riding through torturous conditions and risking life and limb at every race meeting.
Hill said: “British Superbikes is motorcycle racing at its very best and this film shows that brilliantly. It’s amazing to see BSB on the cinema screen. It’s a massive sport with a great following – now hopefully people who don’t know it that well can see what an incredible event it is.”
Motorcycle fans are expected to flock to the cinema when the film is made available to the public on March 14.
