If you thought Michael Schumacher's skills on tarmac were all about 4 wheels you'd be way wrong. Turns out he's more than a little handy on a motorcycle too. Given the opportunity with MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team we brought an all-star list of riders together to hit Paul Ricard Circuit and run a Legends track day. Riding out with Michael were John McGuinness (hero of the Isle of Man TT Course), Randy Mamola (one of the most respected Grand Prix riders of all time), Pol Espargaro (2012 Moto2 runner up and legend in the making) and Keith Flint (no slouch on a bike thanks to his Endurance racing). Fair to say the company was pretty good.
In consultation with the client, Farmboy worked out an idea for this video. Composing a crew, taking charge of the imaging and storyline were a few of our tasks during this production. Working together with all these high profile athletes, brings along a huge responsibility for making a successful production. Let’s say it was not without error, but we managed to pull it off and capture this unique experience on video.
Watch the guys come together for a once in a lifetime session at one of the most renowned circuits in Europe.
