MotoGP the movie trailer released

Hitting the Apex trailer with Brad Pitt now showing

BRAD Pitt lends his voice on the trailer of Hitting the Apex, the upcoming MotoGP movie charting the careers of six racers.

The film focuses on the battles, triumphs and personalities of Casey Stoner, Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi and also the rise of Marc Marquez.

It also examines the dangers and sacrifices of the sport, telling the story of the talented Marco Simoncelli's rise through the ranks to MotoGP and his sad death at Sepang in 2011.

The premiere takes place at the Silverstone MotoGP round on Friday, 28 August and will be shown in selected cinemas from 2 September.

Actor Pitt is a self-confessed Rossi fan and has been spotted supporting his hero at MotoGP rounds across the world... perhaps he should try entering this competition.
