Horsepower that the average motorist can barely contemplate. Circuits where he could not achieve 100 miles an-hour for even a few moments. That's the awesome task faced by the world's leading endurance car crews as they race round 11 of the world's top circuits for hours on end. The fatigue, the drama, the tension, the tragedy - they're all here on this magnificent video depicting the highlights of the 1985 world championship.
Brilliant camerawork ensures a ringside seat for the armchair enthusiast - yet satisfies even the needs of the fully-fledged purist who's seen it all. Money seems almost academic to the major factories as they strive to achieve the ultimate goal of increased sales ensured by victory in the series.
The drivers are only part of the team. The pit crews, the managers, the technicians - even dieticians - are all brought into the glamorous arena of world-class endurance racing with its spectacle, its gorgeous girls and its mind-blowing speed in cars built to win in every sense. They say racing improves the breed. Watching this film will improve your appreciation of this attractive motor sport.
