From Ultimate Motorcycling: “Mark Neale has released a new MotoGP documentary – “Hitting the Apex” – that’s narrated by one of the world’s most known actors, Brad Pitt.
The documentary, released by Universal, follows the careers of the most iconic names in MotoGP over the past decade – nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez, Dani Pedrosa, Casey Stoner and the late Marco Simoncelli.
The Hitting the Apex movie hits theaters Sept. 2 – but unfortunately for stateside MotoGP fans, the release is only for the UK. The MotoGP movie will be available September 7 on DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital – but again, only in the UK. It is currently available for pre-order on the United Kingdom’s Amazon.co.uk.
We have no word when “Hitting the Apex” will hit the American market, but it should be soon. For now, here’s the official Hitting the Apex Movie Trailer.
In 2015 MotoGP, the battle for the title as of 11 of 18 rounds is between three of these riders – Movistar Yamaha MotoGP pilots Rossi and Lorenzo, and the two-time reigning MotoGP Champion, Repsol Honda’s Marquez. Rossi and Lorenzo are tied with 211 points, and after an unsually slow start to the season, Marquez is up into third, 52 points behind.”
