Exclusive: TT3D Trailer Screams In
Faster and furiouser

22 March 2011  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

If you're a petrolhead, there's a few documentaries to lock into your diary for the weeks ahead. Alongside Asif Kapadia's acclaimed bio-doc Senna comes TT3D: Closer To The Edge, an equally high-revving look at the Isle of Man's week-long motorbiking bonanza that's part racing doc, part character study.

The Isle of Man TT brings the cream of world motorbiking talent to the island for a week of bat-out-of-hell racing through its lanes and byeways every year. TT3D, as you can see from the trailer below, captures all this in a blur of thrills and spills, as screaming tyres and screeching breaks punctuate the island's usually serene villages. Think Days Of Thunder across the set of Postman Pat.



The Cole Trickle of the show is Guy Martin, a motor-mouthed maverick and showman who frustrates his sponsors, annoys the powers-that-be and generally scares the hell out of the wildlife, all while delighting his small army of fanatical fans with his hair-raising biking and outspoken antics. Lined up against him are steely-eyed veteran John McGuinness, ultra-focused challenger Ian Hutchinson and local boy Conor Cummins. It's hardly a spoiler to say that not everyone in the film walks away from it.

 

Catch TT3D: Closer To The Edge in, er, 3D from April 22.
