  • A crowd of people stand on a flat white plain. In the distance, a snarling, roaring dark speck is hurtling towards them. It's a motorbike. The rider is inside the shell, lying almost flat. 'Go, Burt!'. The red bike blurs past. Fingers click stop-watches.

 

  • The moment young Burt Munro saw a motorbike chugging down a quiet Invercargill street, he was hooked. More than fifty years later, he and his ancient Indian motorcycle would amaze the racing world by setting a world land-speed record - one that remains unbroken to this day.
  • Burt didn't have much money. He wasn't young. But he was determined. And, in the end, he became a Kiwi legend.

 

  • A wonderful true story about a very unlikely New Zealand champion, by the award-winning author and illustrator of First to the Top.
