Scott has one obsession: to fulfill his late father's dream of racing in the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy Races, the most dangerous and prestigious motorcycle road race in the world. Far from their home in British Columbia and still reeling from a recent tragedy, Scott and his roommates-turned-pit crew have only five days during Practice Week to secure a spot in the TT. Scott must qualify with a fast enough time or he doesn't race. But the pressure of working with a rookie crew on the potentially lethal course puts Scott's safety and his friendships on the line. As race day draws near he and his friends will have to swallow their pride to help Scott achieve his dream.

Major rider line-up changes promised the 2011 MotoGP World Championship would be a spectacular end to the 800cc era, and the thrilling elbow-to-elbow racing delivered a spectacular season of action and drama.
Reigning World Champion Jorge Lorenzo was joined by Ben Spies at the Yamaha squad after MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi switched to Ducati, while Casey Stoner departed the Italian team to race for Honda. As the teams arrived at Qatar, the scene was set for 18 stunning rounds.
The Official Review features action from every race, with stunning footage, interviews and comprehensive coverage of the defining moments of the year.
Rossi struggled to get to grips with his Ducati, but Stoner was soon at home on his Honda RC212V, finding a form which would carry him to 10 victories and a second MotoGP World Championship. The challenge from Lorenzo was ended by a terrible finger injury, while Honda's Dani Pedrosa again saw his title hopes halted by a collarbone fracture.
Stoner dominated the results, but only after some of the most thrilling racing of the 800cc era, even the very last race of the year was decided by only 0.015 of a second!
The Official Review is filled with action from every meeting, and all the essential highlights, including Spies's maiden MotoGP victory, Pedrosa's amazing return to race-winning form in Japan and the end of one of the sport's longest careers, as Loris Capirossi rode his 328th and final Grand Prix.
The Official Review also pays tribute to Marco Simoncelli, the Italian superstar who tragically lost his life in a racing crash early in the Malaysian Grand Prix, a remarkable talent, and much-missed racer.
