“The Badger: Made in Trenton”

Tweetable Logline:

Can this unlikely Royal Enfield based race project hit the track as a road racer, set 4 speed records and flat track all in a month?

Elevator Pitch:

Over the course of the coming month I will direct a documentary about an unlikely underdog race project: “The Badger: Made in Trenton.”

We are going to be following Badger Corse first on September 22, for the road racing WERA round at Summit Point, West Virginia. The following weekend, September 29-30, will find us in Ohio at the Ohio MIle for speed trials. Then on October 21, it’s off to the Badger’s final challenge in Cuddybackville, New York for some flat track action. Can a humble Royal Enfield, taken from the street, break records and win glory on the track?

Production Team:

Director/Producer: Drue Pennella
Producer/Director of Photography: Edwin Adlam Herod
Producers: Erik Paulsen and Heather Johnson

About the Production:

“After filmmaking, probably my biggest passion is motorcycles. I’m a sucker for vintage British bikes and have come to hold a special place in my heart for the brand Royal Enfield. One of the things I love about motorcycles is that they bring people together. I have been very fortunate in the past few years to become good friends with fellow lover of Enfields and creator of “The Badger”, Leon Stanley.” — Drue Pennella

Current Status:

In pre-production.
