Speed Is My Need

This thrilling documentary takes us inside the mind of a superbike racer. What makes riders risk their lives for the thrill of speed? This look behind the scenes of the world of racing superbikes is a spectacular tale of courage, crashes, psychology, speed and victory. Featuring interviews with MotoGP racing legends 'Fast' Freddie Spencer and Colin 'Texas Tornado' Edwards, plus Rick Broadbent, 'Rocket' Ron Haslam and his son British Champion Leon Haslam, and the fastest-ever rider at the Isle of Man TT, Peter 'Hicky' Hickman.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Suzuki superbike racer Richard Cooper.
