The start of the 2011 Dakar Rally marks the announcement of the upcoming release of Dream Racer – a documentary drama that tells the story of an ordinary man with an extraordinary dream – to compete in the world’s most dangerous motor race.

In 2010, Christophe Barriere-Varju put everything on the line to finish the Dakar in South America on his motorbike.

Film-maker Simon Lee followed him on his incredible roller coaster journey - from the struggle to find funds to take part and his preparations in the sand dunes of eastern Australia to 10,000 thrilling kilometres across Argentina & Chile.

The Dream Racer film shows The Dakar in its purest form – no sponsors, no multi-million dollar team, not even a mechanic – just one man, a motorbike, his tool-roll, and the world’s most dangerous motor race.

Dream Racer will be available on DVD and touring film festivals internationally from mid-2011.
