Product description

‘The past is a foreign country, they do things differently there.’

The Armoy of the 1970s, captured in this evocative film, is certainly different.

With ‘The Road Racers,’ Academy Award winning director David Wallace pays witness to a moment in motorsport history that continues to influence motorcycle road racing in the most profound ways. 

The mundane: selling cars, digging turf, herding cattle, fixing bikes. The sublime: the vicious crackle of racing engines at full power disturbing the milk round during "unofficial practice", rider’s-eye view of racing on roads barely wide-enough to take a car.  This film authentically captures the lives of Joey Dunlop, Mervyn Robinson and Frank Kennedy at the height of the ‘Armoy Armada’.

Wallace’s film skilfully documents the hectic Irish roads season starting at the North West 200 - the British Isles' fastest motorcycle race - through the Cookstown 100 to the finale at Carrowdore.  

This highly acclaimed production takes you behind the scenes as the road racers prepare to tackle the dangerous public roads races - and allows you an insight into the emotional side of racing too.
