Wayne_Gardner_1982.jpgFilmed during the 1986 season, "Lone Racer" tells the story of upcoming GP500 rider Wayne Gardner. More than just vintage racing footage (there's plenty of  that too), the documentary opens with a shot of Gardner jogging before going on to delve into his personality and the struggle he faces as he starts winning races. Wayne's NSR500 is also explored in depth. Not only will racing ever be this raw and dangerous again, but thanks to the era of managed messages, we'll likely never get such an intimate look inside another World Champion's life. The Wollongong Whiz won the Championship the year after this was filmed.  >
