Video: Inside The Passion with John McGuinness

Follow Andrew Shim following John McGuinness around the Isle of Man TT.

Shimmy (as he’s known) has been a motorcycling fan for as long as he can remember. Long before he was plucked out of a crowd by Shane Meadows to act in his first movie and ages before he’d become synonymous with the character Milky from the This Is England TV series.

He’s been a friend of Motofire since we bumped into him at last year’s TT launch, and now he’s finally launched the fruits of his year-long labour – and by that we mean sleeping in vans and wandering around with his GoPro attached to his arm like a man possessed – last night uploaded the first part of his ‘Inside The Passion’ documentary.

Andrew says that “I wanted to create a series of documentaries that brought fans like myself closer to the rider, and allowed me to understand what that person is like in real life, away from the podium and “correct answer” interviews, a documentary that allowed the riders to show their real and true colours.”

Which is as good an introduction as any…

We’re looking forward to seeing what else he has on the cards.
