Riding the strong path paved by the success of Mark Neale's 2004 MotoGP hit Faster, comes the most exhilarating thrill ride on two wheels. These bikes are built for one purpose, completing the gruelling, man-made series of twists and turns laid before them in the shortest possible time. Pushing speeds of over 300km/h, every aspect of these bikes is fine-tuned for ultimate performance. The Doctor, The Tornado and the Kentucky Kid tells the story of three riders, two of whom have worked towards this moment for their entire lives, and the challenges and hardships they face competing at such a prestigious level. Narrated by Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting, Star Wars), The Doctor, The Tornado and the Kentucky Kid focuses on the biggest motorcycle race in American history, the 2005 Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Laguna Seca, California. While the race itself only lasts an hour, the preparation for such an event takes months. The film documents the trials and tribulations of all involved; the teams, the families, the fans and most importantly the riders. This race is particularly close to home for the U.S. riders, many of whom trained at Laguna Seca when they were younger. For them, this is the moment of truth. Featuring all the biggest names in motorcycle racing today, and composed in a way that will keep avid fans enthralled, while initiating and entertaining less savvy viewers, The Doctor, The Tornado and the Kentucky Kid is a non-stop, four-stroke-fuelled, white-knuckle ride from start to finish, and as close as you get to the action without actually being there. Featuring surprise appearances by Brad Pitt and Adrien Brody.
