The story of a dramatic superbike championship won by a Lincoln rider will be screened as a world premiere at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln next month.
I Superbiker: The War for Four (15) tells the story of Lincoln’s Alex Lowes, who became the youngest British Superbike champion in history following an epic battle with three-time champion Shane Byrne. The film records the ups and downs of a memorable season with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, on-track action and narration by Murray Walker, the voice of British motorsport.
The Venue at BGU will host the world premiere of the film on Saturday 5th April as well as a question-and-answer session with Alex Lowes, director Mark Sloper and the Samsung Honda Team. The talk will begin at 7pm and the film will follow at 7.30pm. There will be a further Q&A and screening at 9.30pm.
Alex Lowes is the current holder of the British Superbike Championship riding a Honda CBR1000RR for Samsung Honda. He is the identical twin brother of fellow motorcycle competitor Sam Lowes, who is the current holder of the World Supersport Championship. Racing over 12 rounds across the UK, and now with the legendary Dutch Assen circuit on the map, the British Superbike Championship cannot be decided until the last race of the year at the famous Brands Hatch circuit.
“I Superbiker: The War of Four is where death-defying action and compelling human drama collide,” said Mark Sloper. “The atmosphere at Brands Hatch in the dangerous, wet conditions was electric. If I could have written the perfect season for thrills and spills this would have been it word for word, frame for frame, second by bone-crunching split second.”
