Following a successful event at CMC Motorcycles, Clay Cross, in August of last year, award-winning motorcycle film maker Peter Starr is planning another visit to the UK in late April/May bringing his ‘Night at the Movies’ show to a select number of venues.
Starr has 40 classic motorcycle movies to his credit, including the acclaimed, never on general release in the UK, Take It To The Limit, and has covered all aspects of two wheeled sport, filming Kenny Roberts, Barry Sheene, Mike Hailwood, Wayne Rainey, Freddie Spencer, Steve Baker, Russ Collins and many more.
Using an on-board film camera – a technique he pioneered – Starr recorded Hailwood riding a Padgett Yamaha around the Isle of Man TT course in 1977, as ‘Mike the Bike’ decided whether to come out of retirement to race again in 1978. History proves how successful that test was!
The shows will include the Hailwood clips, Barry Sheene at the Race of the Year in 1976 and a host of other footage of bike racing icons.
After the show, Starr will hold a Q and A session and sign copies of his book Taking it to the Limit.
Venues and potential sponsorship partners are now being sought to stage a ‘Night at the Movies’. Contact Geoff Selvidge on 07817 615677 or email: [email protected] for more details.
