Remember Mark Neale? He’s the filmmaker behind the well-received MotoGP documentary Faster, as well as a recent electric racing documentary titled Charge. Now he’s coming out with a new MotoGP film, titled Fastest, set to release this summer.
This time around, Neale’s film focuses on the 2010 MotoGP season and Valentino Rossi’s drive with – and against – Yamaha teammate Jorge Lorenzo for the world championship. Rossi’s battles against young racers like Ben Spies, Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner, his career-threatening crash and speedy return to racing, Lorenzo’s championship victory, and Rossi’s departure to the Ducati team are all on tape.
A MotoGP season has just as many twists and turns as a racetrack, so Fastest ought to be a film worth watching. It’s previewing at the Cannes film festival right now, and will be available on DVD and in select theatres this summer. Go nag your local movie house – if you’re lucky and the manager is a race enthusiast, they just might bring it in for you.

Bugger. Fixed. Sorry about that.
Cool! So if it is out this summer, we find out who won the 2011 moto GP before it is over?
Wow wonder if the bookies still open.
