Road

by Michael Hewitt, Diarmuid Lavery Special Screenings

"Nothing to fear. Everything to lose." Motorcycle road racing is the most dangerous of all racing sports. Men duel on ordinary roads at breakneck speeds of up to 320 km/h. Often lined with, amongst other things, trees and telephone poles, these roads are obviously unsuitable for this purpose. Ireland and the Isle of Man are two of the few locations worldwide, where a race of this kind is held today. Narrated by Liam Neeson, ROAD recounts the extraordinary story of the Northern Irish Dunlop family, which has dominated this crazy sport for over thirty years. A story of success. And tragedy.
