MotoGP™ rights holder Dorna Sports SL is set to release a feature-length documentary reviewing Marc Marquez’s first season in MotoGP™, in which he emerged as the best newcomer of 2013 in spectacular style.
The rider from Cervera, Spain, who had already taken World Championship titles in the 125cc and Moto2™ tiers - had a brilliant first year in the premier class, fighting for the title with team-mate Dani Pedrosa and double World Champion Jorge Lorenzo, as well as his childhood idol Italian rider Valentino Rossi.
Along the way he broke numerous records previously belonging to motorcycle legends Freddie Spencer and Kenny Roberts – both of whom are big admirers of the young Spaniard.
Titled '#Rookie93MarcMarquez - Beyond the Smile', the 82 minute-long documentary is set for international distribution, with home video release already scheduled for the UK through Duke and Germany through Radio Viktoria.
The documentary will be released digitally with English, French, Spanish, Italian and German subtitles via iTunes (in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the US) over the coming weeks.
A 52-minute TV version will be broadcast by Mediaset España's Telecinco channel on Sunday 15th December at 2pm.
The behind-the-scenes insight reviews the new World Champion’s remarkable 2013 campaign, featuring previously unseen footage of the preparations for his first year in MotoGP™, as well as all the key moments that shaped his memorable season.
In addition to a candid interview with Marquez himself, it also features the views of some of the key people surrounding him, as well as insights from his on-track rivals.
