The best untold story of the Isle of Man TT races.

Dave Madsen-Mygdal, a privateer road racer started racing at the Isle of Man TT in the early 1980’s and has since amassed 149 TT race starts... more than anyone in the history of the world’s most dangerous motorcycle event.

Now in his late 60’s his passion for road racing keeps burning bright as he prepares for the start line again.

Faster Than Life gives an exclusive insight to the tight knit road racing world, family, friendships, the highs, the lows and the generational involvement. The film is not just focused on racing but the human aspect and created in a way that is accessible to a broader audience.

The feature documentary follows Dave in 2019 through the two covid cancelled TT years and culminates in behind the scenes action of TT 2022. The viewer gets an insight to what it takes for a privateer to get onto the start line of the world’s pinnacle motorcycle race showing some epic onboard and track shots of Dave as he races through towns, mountains and between the trees & hedges at 150mph in the Supertwin race.

The independent film has been produced by Felipe Costa and Chip Gulland who are based on the Isle of Man and have worked on a number of projects together combining aerial filming and experience in the Brazilian film industry. Their work has featured in short films, documentaries and national advertisements while filming in a run & gun style.

The story is 100% complete and will be available behind a paywall from May 2024. Proceeds from this will enable the film to be polished off (image & audio) before submitting to film festivals and streaming platforms.

The support and participation of road racing fans will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your support!
