MotoGP: Dorna to Release Marc Marquez Documentary

Marc Marquez Documentary – “#Rookie93MarcMarquez – Beyond the Smile”

At 20-years-old, Marc Marquez has already accomplished the ultimate achievement for a motorcycle racer – he became champion.

The Repsol Honda rider of Cervera, Spain, entered the series with a title in the 125cc and Moto2 classes, and was expected to be a top competitor during his rookie year.

But Marquez rode beyond these expectations, and broke many records en route to the title, including many set by the American MotoGP legends Kenny Roberts and Freddie Spencer.

And now, Dorna Sports SL wants to further exploit the talent of Marquez. The MotoGP rights holder is set to release a feature-length documentary reviewing Marquez’s 2013 season.

Marquez rode with the best of them, including his teammate Dani Pedrosa, and the Yamaha Factory Racing duo of Jorge Lorenzo, a two-time MotoGP Champion, and Valentino Rossi, a seven-time champion in the premier class.

And this new documentary, titled “#Rookie93MarcMarquez – Beyond the Smile,”  will give MotoGP fans an inside look at Marquez.

Dorna says 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, Dorna says.

For Spanish fans, a 52-minute TV version will be broadcast by Mediaset España’s Telecinco channel at 2 p.m. Dec 15.

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.
