Network Ten will air a special Casey Stoner tribute on Monday following the Australian Grand Prix.

Network Ten will present Casey Stoner – The Final Lap, airing Monday, 29 October, at 9:30pm on TEN.

Fresh from his final race on home soil at Phillip Island this coming weekend, the documentary produced by TEN Sport takes a look at the stellar career of two-time MotoGP World Champion Casey Stoner, and what led to his early retirement.

“We have followed Casey since the very beginning of his international racing career from the days when he and his family were doing it tough living in a bus in the UK, right through to his two world championship wins and his decision to retire,” Network Ten commentator Greg Rust said.

“We have found some terrific content while putting this documentary together including an interview conducted by the late Barry Sheene when Casey was just 15 years old.”

The one hour special will feature interviews with Valentino Rossi, Jorge Lorenzo, Nicky Hayden, Dani Pedrosa, Mick Doohan, Wayne Gardner, Craig Lowndes, Jamie Whincup, Mark Webber and a variety of people that influenced Casey’s motorcycling life and career.
