TT3D: Closer to the Edge

Synopsis: By vividly recounting the TT's legendary rivalries and the Isle of Man's unique road racing history, this 3D feature documentary will discover why modern TT riders still risk their lives to win the world's most dangerous race. The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy is the greatest motorcycle road race in the world, the ultimate challenge for rider and machine. It has always called for a commitment far beyond any other racing event, and many have made the ultimate sacrifice in their quest for victory. A story about freedom of choice, the strength of human spirit and the will to win. It's also an examination of what motivates those rare few, this elite band of brothers who risk everything to win. The vision of top commercials director Richard de Aragues, this promises to be one of the most thrilling films of 2011.

There is nothing

to compare it with.

It's the most exhilarating place

in the world.

It's like being able to fly.

Just like growing wings.

If it's in your blood, you...

You can't get it out.

You just want more.

You put

the earplugs in, the helmet goes on.

Everything goes quiet.

You know what's ahead of you,

and everything else around you

is forgotten

and it's time you get on with the job.

My mind goes completely blank.

And my mind just goes into madness.

Well, /suppose

it all revolved around

Mr Acum,

me primary school teacher; really.

And he didn't half put manners in us,

that man.

You know, in my day, like, and all that.

But I think, you know,

f*ck it, what a boy.

Just, you know, if we was naughty,

he used to give us the slipper:

We knew we was getting it,

cos he used to warm it up on a radiator

before he give us it.

If we was naughty again, which was

mostly me, I was naughty all the time,

we used to have to pick stones up

so the lawn mower

wouldn't run over them.

He used to have his own putting green

out the back of school

and our main job was keeping the

putting green right and mowing grass.

And then, yeah,

I thought natural progression,

I wanted to go and race them.

I've still got my first engine

I ever had.

Suffolk Punch lawn mower engine,

I think it's down there.

Yeah, I just used to play with that.

It was all I wanted to do.

I wasn't bothered about...

You know, I had a few mates.

But I wasn't bothered about,

you know, girls.

I'm still

not bothered about girls, really.

I'm not gay or owt

But I'm just, you know, I'd rather play

with lorries and tractors and engines.

Still, I haven't really grown up.

No, I haven't grown up.

- You got the key?

- Yeah.

Are we all right, then?

Right hand down, boss.

Road racers? A bit mad...

That's tight. You bastard.

What would you say...

A tile short of a roof?

One short of a six pack?

A few slates adrift?

We'd use that one a lot.

Lights are on but no one's home.

I can imagine,

from the outside looking in,

anyone that's racing the TT looks like

the lights are on but no one's home.

You're not a proper road racer

until you've won a T I obviously aren't a proper road racer,

because I haven't won one.

But I'm trying. I don't give in.

Barry Sheene wasn't a big fan, was he?

He thought it was too dangerous, did he.

There you go, lager-shandy drinking

southern poofters, there you go.

That says it all, doesn't it? Yeah.

That's it, we're away now.

All right, boss.

We're getting there.

I was only watching that

the other night, the Dam Busters.

Yeah, it's mega, that. Wallis Barnes.

You know the idea

that got him into that was, um...

No. Not Napoleon...

Who was your boy, that used it in

the battleships? Beginning with an "N"?

Not Napoleon...

Different things

make different people happy, don't they?

Some lads love going to the pub,

I don't like being in the pub.

Some lads love shagging,

I don't like shagging

I don't mind it, but I'm not into it.

I'd rather just go and ride

me motorbikes or me pushbikes.

It's whatever you're into, isn't it?

If we was all the same everybody

would be at the TT wouldn't they?

But different things

make different people tick.

And that makes me tick, and that's

why I'm gonna keep on going.

I just want to keep going

until I've won one.

Or won Eve, that's my plan, win five in

a week, that's not been done before.

171 go and do that, then that's it.

171 go and End the next job to do

I've got another big goal, this...

He's a massive... Well, not massive,

he's not massive, is he?
