Director Jon Brewer unearths the fascinating story that was the undercurrent of film icon Steve McQueen's favourite pastime and hidden talent dirt-bike racing in this fast-paced biographical documentary narrated by Charley Boorman. The film explores McQueen's obsession with speed and the invention of the racing bike The Desert Racer, a by-product of his relationship with Bud Ekins, his stunt double on "The Great Escape." "Steve McQueen: Desert Racer" boasts new and candid interviews with Chad McQueen from his Malibu home. McQueen's racing contemporaries, John Cooper and Dave Ekins, also contribute, with firsthand stories featuring Steve McQueen in his happiest times. Now the Metisse motorbike designed by Steve and Bud is being re-created in Limited Edition, handcrafted in the UK. This Blu-ray features English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired.
