Former grand prix motorcycle rider of the Continental Circus, I was an actor in the 70's "french generation". The experience of my fifteen years of racing amongst the elite drivers from 1970 to 1984 and that of thirty years on movie sets as a photographer and director gave me confidence to combine these two passions.
At 60 I found again the track and the necessity to tell this adventure. I thus taken what I had left unfinished thirty years ago.
I am one of the last drivers of this era that still has the chance and opportunity to relive this past in pictures and testimonies. It's now or never. Running to film and film to run became my credo. It is the uniqueness of this film.
See you soon on his website !!
