FASTEST debuted in the U.S. at The Deuce Lounge inside the Aria Resort and Casino at City Center in Las Vegas on Friday, October 14, 2011. The exclusive premiere was attended by Monster Energy athletes, Monster Girls, and industry insiders. The film received rave reviews by all who attended, and everyone was pumped to watch the thrills and drama of MotoGP unfold! Check out the recap video from the premiere to see what superstars like Jeremy McGrath and John Hopkins had to say about their experience at the event! In true cinematic fashion, FASTEST is a maximum-speed, full-length film capturing the thrilling, and sometimes terrifying reality of MotoGP racing. From acclaimed filmmaker Mark Neale (“Faster,” “The Doctor, The Tornado and The Kentucky Kid.”), along with award-winning producer Paul Taublieb, the film charts Valentino Rossi’s quest for his eighth premier class championship as he battles back from a horrific, leg-shattering crash to take on a wave of ferociously fast young riders and the emerging stars of the sport, including Jorge Lorenzo, Ben Spies, Dani Pedrosa, Casey Stoner, as well as Marco Simoncelli, in whose memory FASTEST is now dedicated. With unprecedented access and never-before-seen footage, FASTEST asks the question every rider – even the greatest of all time – must face: who’s fastest now? FASTEST. The greatest feeling. The greatest risk. Never-before-seen footage in the almost one-hour of DVD extras include: – “Save! – “Redneck Physics and Real Physics” with Colin Edwards and other MotoGP riders and insiders – “Yellow” a candid conversation with graphic designer Alberto Drudi and Kevin Schwanz about Rossi’s colors and inspiration for his helmet designs – A profile of Riders for Health, official charity of FASTEST – The long version of the FASTEST trailer, including footage not seen in the movie
