A surprise guest will be one of the stars of the film and a current British Superbike rider.
Narrated by F1 broadcast legend Murray Walker I Superbiker: The Day of Reckoning is the electrifying sequel to 2012's ground-breaking, critically acclaimed I, Superbiker: The Showdown.
The British Superbike Championships are the largest single spectator sport in the UK. I, Superbiker is the high-octane wheel to wheel following of the 2012 British Superbike season, culminating in the sport's closest final heat in its history, leaving just six riders competing for the prestigious title in a dramatic showdown.
Writer, producer and director Mark Sloper said: "I wanted to capture the emotion and passion of motorcycle racing and the drama of the new showdown format. This is a classic motorcycle racing film, set in the 2012 season but a timeless story that will stay fresh for years to come. I also wanted it to appeal to people outside the motorcycle industry and the fan-base and I truly believe it will change outsiders' perceptions of motorcycling."
Capturing the on-track action in stunning 2K digital photography, as well as exploring deep into the commitment, psyche and lives of the riders, the film also goes behind the scenes to reveal the unfolding drama through the eyes of the wives, girlfriends, team-mates and managers of the competitors.
Tommy Hill, the current British Superbike Champion who spectacularly won the 2011 title by one sixtieth of a second, is determined to prove himself the champion once more.
With a pregnant fiancée in the wings, will his nerve hold in such treacherous riding conditions? Tommy commented: "Only one man can be the winner. British Superbikes is motorcycle racing at its very best and the film captures that brilliantly.
"It's amazing to see BSB on the cinema screen.
"It's a massive sport with a great following – now hopefully people who don't know it that well can see what an incredible event it is."
