It is the best documentary yet made about the gruelling Dakar Rally and it features Australian rider Christophe Barrier-Varju. Read my review of the movie here.
Its last screenings are tonight (October 23) at 6.45 in Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Guest speakers will introduce the film at each location.
In Brisbane, Christian Loghem and Stuart Gall from The Great Australian Ride will talk about the 20-day motorcycle ride across Australia from east to west.
It raises funds for SIDS and KIDS which provides Queensland families with bereavement support and services for pregnancy, neonatal, accidental or sudden loss up to six years of age and makes a difference in prevention and reduction rates of loss via education, awareness and advocacy.

In Perth, seven-times women’s World Marathon Swimming Champion, international best-selling author, champion mindset, motivation and mental toughness performance coach Shelley Taylor-Smith will be the guest speaker.
She set a world record for a 90km swim from Sydney to Wollongong on January 17, 1995, in 12 hours 24 minutes 7 seconds. She will be joined in the Q&A session by motorcycle racer Rob Pollard who finished the 2010 Dakar Rally and features in “Dream Racer”.
The film tells the story of French Australian business consultant Christophe Barriere-Varju’s attempt to take on the Dakar Rally on his motorbike, and producer, writer and director Simon Lee’s efforts to document it.
Australian Creative magazine editor Candide McDonald called Dream Racer “the motivational film of the decade”.
