Wayne is the near improbable true story of the ‘larrikin kid’ from Wollongong. With girlfriend Donna Forbes never far from his side, Wayne’s remarkable journey takes him from a 5-dollar dirt bike to the pinnacle of his sport. In 1987 he became the first Australian to win the World Motorcycle Grand Prix, and with it, the hearts of all Australians.
The “Wollongong Whiz” only won one Grand Prix world championship compared with Mick Doohan who won five titles and Casey Stoner who won two.
However, he was the first in 1987 to win the premiership class and was instrumental in bringing the GP to Australia where he won the inaugural race at Phillip Island in 1989.
It’s like a script from a movie … which it now is!
The movie features interviews with legends from the sport’s ‘golden age’ including Eddie Lawson, Mick Doohan and Kevin Schwantz,
