I, Superbiker: The Day Of Reckoning
I, Superbiker: The Day Of Reckoning “Tension mounts among the gifted
  motorcyclists taking part in the 2012
  British Superbike Championship,
  knowing there will be only one winner

  but will the current champion reign
  supreme or will someone else win the
  day at the largest single spectator
  sport in the UK?


WITH A DOGGED DETERMINATION TO WIN and to keep their dream jobs, the best of the young motorcycle racers taking part in the 2012 British Superbike Championship go wheel-to-wheel in the race to become the ultimate champion.

I, Superbiker follows the series of races that make up the Championships talking to the motorcyclists who are taking part, their parents (who encourage and support them) and past champions of the event such as Ron Haslam and Roger Marshall, a friend of the late and great Barry Sheene.

“I, Superbiker:
The Day Of Reckoning
gets right to
the heart of the
thrill of the action where
the skill of the riders
is breathtakingly
precise and their
passion is palpably
infectious
...”
Performance at each event matters and rising star Alex Lowes, Shane "Shakey" Byrne, Australian Josh Brookes, the Ireland's Michael Laverty, and Tommy Bridewell are all passionate about their craft and talk excitedly and knowledgeably about the race.

Tommy, from Wiltshire, rides for the Italian team on a German bike in memory of his brother Ollie, who died tragically at the age of 21 in an accident at Mallory Park in 2007.

This is high-octane, wheel-to-wheel stuff as the competing riders enter into the 2012 British Superbike season which culminates in the sport's closest final heat in its history; leaving just six riders competing for the prestigious title in a dramatic showdown.

Capturing the riveting on-track action in stunning 2K digital photography, I, Superbiker: The Day Of Reckoning goes behind the scenes to reveal the unfolding drama through the eyes of those closest to the riders. The skill and determination of those taking part in the race is paramount nerves and doubts all forgotten as they take to the track.

Current Superbike Champion Tommy Hill, who spectacularly won the 2011 title by one sixtieth of a second, is keen to prove himself the champion once more. With a pregnant fiancée watching from the sidelines and cheering him on, will his nerve hold in such treacherous riding conditions?

"Only one man can be the winner," acknowledges Tommy. "British Superbikes is motorcycle racing at its very best and the film captures that brilliantly." He adds: "It's amazing to see BSB on the cinema screen. It's a massive sport with a great following. Now hopefully people who don't know it that well can see what an incredible event it is."

The 2012 British Superbike Championship is described as "undoubtedly the closest nail-biting action anywhere in the world" and as the event progresses, I, Superbiker: The Day Of Reckoning gets right to the heart of the thrill of the action where the skill of the riders is breathtakingly precise and their passion is palpably infectious.

"I wanted to capture the emotion and passion of motorcycle racing and the drama of the new showdown format," says writer, producer and director Mark Sloper. "This is a classic motorcycle racing film, set in the 2012 season, but also a timeless story that will stay fresh for years to come."

He adds: "I also wanted it to appeal to people outside the motorcycle industry and the fan-base; and I truly believe it will change outsiders' perceptions of motorcycling." Bringing this wonderful and exciting event to the big screen offers enthusiasts who were unable to be there an incredible experience not to be missed.

Narrated by F1 broadcast legend Murray Walker OBE, the electrifying sequel to the 2012 ground-breaking, critically-acclaimed I, Superbiker: Showdown is making its UK theatrical debut.

* I, Superbiker: Day Of Reckoning is released in cinemas across the UK by Carnaby International in association with the MCE Insurance sponsored Superbike Championship (BSB) and Motorcycle News (MCN) from 25 March 2013. Running Time: 99 Minutes.
