Thirty-something business consultant Christophe Barriere-Varju is desperate to rekindle the glory of his youth as a teenage motocross legend on Africa’s Ivory Coast. Adman Simon Lee yearns to make a movie, but with a growing family, job and mortgage, his time is running out. The Dakar Rally offers both men the chance to fulfil their dream, but it’s a dream that won’t come easily and an extreme undertaking that will etch itself irrevocably into these two very different men’s lives.
For the first time in a feature length film, Dream Racer shows the legendary Dakar 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. 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.
