Velocity: The MotoGP movie


Kenny Roberts will now be a movie star!

Can’t get enough of MotoGP? Wait for Velocity, a full-blown Hollywood movie on the sport. ‘King’ Kenny Roberts will star in this movie, which will be premiered at next year’s Cannes film festival. Director Jeff Jensen (who’s earlier directed another bike racing movie that came out in 2002 – High Speed – which was about the World Superbikes scene…) says he wants to really blur the lines between fiction and reality.

Velocity is going to be a high budget flick, backed by Dorna, so in addition to real action footage shot during real MotoGP events this year, expect high-grade special effects and excellent camerawork. The storyline will have something to do with a rookie American racer who gets involved with the Russian oil mafia… er… but as long as it has fast bikes, realistic racing action and a few hot chicks, I suppose it should be all right!
