The award-winning writer and producer of the Senna documentary, Manish Pandey, has teamed up with the Motorsport Network to create their first documentary feature about living legends in the industry.

Manish, the writer and executive producer of the BAFTA and Sundance award-winning film “Senna” and the critically acclaimed hit series “Grand Prix Driver” on Amazon, will produce and direct "Motorsport Heroes", which will premier theatrically prior to a global rollout on OTT digital and linear platforms.

The film will bring together living legends of motorsport who will tell the incredible stories of racing superstars that inspired and motivated them through victory and defeat – and triumph and tragedy.

Manish Pandey has proven himself as the preeminent storyteller in the world of motorsport filmmaking, as evidenced through his critically acclaimed catalogue and numerous nominations. Not only was Pandey’s film “Senna” financially successful, having global earnings in excess of $40 million, but it received universal praise and multiple awards including the BAFTA Award for Best Documentary.

Regarding his partnership with Motorsport Network, Manish Pandey said, "Storytelling, motor racing and filmmaking have been three of the greatest joys of my life. Working Title/Universal Pictures and Amazon Studios gave me opportunities to bring this joy to global audiences with 'Senna' and 'Grand Prix Driver' - and I am thrilled, delighted and excited that Motorsport Network has taken a step that sees them alongside these media giants in allowing me to bring 'Motorsport Heroes' to the big screen because they share that same storytelling and motor racing joy."
