From press release
Canadian Luke Chudleigh’s goal to reach Formula 1 and compete against the best race car drivers in the world has been captured in an exciting new documentary to be aired on TSN, Canada’s leading sports broadcaster, entitled ‘Braking Point’.
The 20-year-old from Milton, Ontario who races for Fortec Motorsports in the 2015 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Series, was shadowed by a film crew last season in Europe capturing life on and off the track, the results of which are packaged together to make ‘Braking Point’, produced by Open Wheel Productions with support from TSN.
Set to air during the Canadian Grand Prix weekend, with the F1 race from Montreal also broadcast by TSN, ‘Braking Point’ will be shown at 4pm EST on Saturday 6th June on TSN1 and TSN4 immediately following F1 qualifying from Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. The show will again air on Sunday 7th June, straight after the Grand Prix, at 4pm EST on TSN2, with further repeats being scheduled.
Born out of a desire to showcase the journey of an aspiring racing driver, and one competing so far from home and the challenges that come with that, ‘Braking Point’ captures both the highs and lows of Luke’s 2014 season competing in the Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS Series.
With in-sight into his relationship with his team, to his family’s opinion on his career and his own unique take on being a Canadian athlete abroad, Chudleigh’s vision for ‘Braking Point’ is realized in the open dialogue and entertaining footage slickly edited together by Los Angeles-based Bill Steinkamp, a notable Hollywood film veteran.
