WRC Crash Collection (3 Disc) DVD - Description

This great value, three-disc set brings together an amazing collection of thrills and spills from the World Rally Championship, featuring the most spectacular, shocking and sometimes hilarious moments from the high speed world of rallying. Colin McRae, Richard Burns, Sebastien Loeb, Tommi Makinen and many more - even the greatest get it wrong sometimes!

In Volume One, experience bone-jarring, car-wrecking, scenery-smashing accidents from almost two decades of the WRC. Incredible camerawork, including plenty from on-board the cars, puts you so close to the action you'll share every heart-stopping moment with rallying greats including Colin McRae, Richard Burns, Carlos Sainz, Petter Solberg, Mikko Hirvonen, Chris Atkinson and many more. Interviews with the stars and team bosses like Malcolm Wilson reveal the true story behind many of these colossal collisions.

Discover the obstacles the top drivers try - and often fail - to avoid, including trees, telegraph poles, Armco barriers and even other WRC cars! You'll experience almighty impacts alongside some of the biggest names in the sport - including a very rare mistake by the seemingly infallible Sebastien Loeb and the horrific accident suffered by McRae in Corsica. There's plenty of young drivers like Dani Sordo finding, and often exceeding, their limits in the high-speed WRC and a chance to witness the supreme talents which have saved several of our stars with just inches to spare. Plus, you can find out exactly how much punishment one of the ultra-strong WRC cars can stand, and why a 'hinkelstein' can spell disaster.

Denis Giraudet, who has been co-driver for many of the sport's major stars during his 20-plus year career, reveals the superstition which he believes has kept him safe in some monumental crashes, plus double World Champions Marcus Gronholm and Timo Rautiainen relive the most spectacular spills and thrills from their glorious career together.

Volume Two features rallying's 'greatest hits' with a look at the most memorable car-destroying smashes, with incredible camerawork, plenty of on-board footage and interviews with the big names bringing you the full story of the WRC's history-making moments. Watch legends like Colin McRae, Richard Burns, Sebastien Loeb, Marcus Gronholm, Tommi Makinen and Petter Solberg prove that even the greatest can get it spectacularly wrong sometimes.

They may be the best, but even motorsport's biggest names can make silly slip-ups, and we relive some of the embarrassing mishaps the stars - including MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi - would rather forget. You'll share the raw emotions of the stars as they count the cost of massive, rally-ending accidents, discover the physical and mental toll WRC events take on even the best, find out exactly how we capture the action footage and learn about the developments which have made WRC cars safer places to be.

We also enjoy a colourful look back at the stunning spills and thrills from the careers of Henning Solberg and co-driver Cato Menkerud, plus some of the bone-breaking incidents experienced by the ever-entertaining Freddy Loix. And we shouldn't forget the hard-charging stars of the Juniors and Production championships, who are always out to prove that anything their WRC colleagues can do, they can do better - including crashing. British masters Kris Meeke and Guy Wilks are among the top names pushing as hard as they can.

Volume Three is another breathtaking collection of shocking smashes and crazy crashes from the fastest rally stages in the world. This is your ticket to ride alongside the legends of the WRC, including Colin McRae, Richard Burns, Sebastien Loeb, Marcus Gronholm, Tommi Makinen and Petter Solberg, as they prove even the greatest get it wrong sometimes. Incredible camerawork, on-board footage and interviews with all the big names take you on a journey through the highs and lows from almost two decades of the WRC.

We celebrate the vital role the fans play in rallying, prove lightning really can strike twice as the world's best drivers get caught out by the same hazards time and time again, see how Dani Sordo and Toni Gardemeister wrote their names in WRC history and find out why Flying Scot McRae considered amputating a finger! We also visit the most challenging events to grace the WRC calendar, including Finland, where you must be inch perfect or face certain disaster, Australia, which gave us those iconic images of Carlos Sainz's huge roll in 1991, Germany, where treacherous conditions and tricky surfaces catch out even the best, and Corsica, where Makinen and McRae are among the greats to have fallen foul of the legendary island stages.

Plus, WRC Crash 3 goes 'Old School' with driving legends Ari Vatanen and Malcolm Wilson to see how massive smashes have always been part of rallying, and how lessons have been learnt from the crashes of the past. Finally, discover who will be crowned 'King of Crashes', with the highest smash-to-start ratio in the WRC - and, perhaps surprisingly, it's not Colin McRae!
