Synopsis

While growing up in Wollongong in the 1960s Wayne Gardner bought his first bike for five dollars. He began his motorcycle racing career in 1977 at the age of 18 and by 1987 he was the Motorcycle World Champion. Gardner enjoyed a career in racing that had never been experienced by an Australian before, and helped define the high-­octane sport at home and abroad. Director Jeremy Sims (Last Cab to Darwin, Beneath Hill 60) makes his feature documentary debut in this revealing portrait of Gardner. The result is a film that’s as free-spirited, introspective, honest and cheeky as the man himself.
