If you’ve ever wondered what it means to step out and live your dream, Dream Racer will give you the answer. Business consultant Christophe Barriere-Varju is desperate to rekindle the glory of his youth as a teenage motocross legend. Adam Simon Lee yearns to make a movie, but his time is running out. The Dakar Rally offers both men the chance to fulfill their dream, but it won’t come easily – from the struggle to find funds, the death of a friend, the birth of a child and 10,000km across South America and some of the harshest terrain on earth.
For the first time in a feature length film, Dream Racer shows the legendary Darak Rally in its purest form – no sponsors, no multi-million dollar team, not even a mechanic – just one rider, a motorbike, a film maker and the world’s most dangerous motor race. But far more than just a motorbike movie, Dream Racer is a call to arms for anyone who has ever dreamt of doing anything – a spine tingling antidote to the fear of life passing you by unfulfilled.
