Product description

"Brutal in its action...compelling" Bike

This 2-disc set features some real Superstar Showdowns as the greatest riders from America test their skills against the finest two-wheel racers Britain and the Commonwealth has to offer.

In the mid-1980s some of the best riders in the world were brought together for the Transatlantic Challenge, testing their skills in a range of different events, with races on Grand Prix machines, unlimited cc Superbikes and more.

These DVDs bring you incredible highlights from the 1984, '85 and '86 meetings at Donington, plus the '87 meetings held between Donington and Brands Hatch.

The entry lists read like a who's who of motorcycle legends - including Barry Sheene, Ron Haslam, Wayne Gardner, Mick Grant, Kenny Roberts, Freddie Spencer, Eddie Lawson, Randy Mamola, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz and many, many more.

This is fast and furious racing. With no championship at stake, and national pride at the fore, these guys are really going for it, and that guarantees some incident-packed racing - such as Haslam's massive off in '84.

There's also plenty of on-bike footage courtesy of the likes of Spencer and Gardner.

"Back in '84 my mum wouldn't let me go to the racing with a load of 'ruffians', but both my brothers used to disappear every Easter, tents strapped to their GPZ or RD. Now I know what I missed. Unspoilt '80s coverage (complete with American commentators in silly hats) of legendary riders like Sheene, Roberts, Schwantz, Spencer, Haslam, Rainey and Gardner all slogging it out in the days when a worn tyre was enough to flick you 15ft in the air and fly-by-wire was reserved for Tron's light cycle. Charming in its simplicity and lack of media-savvy riders, brutal in its action, it's a compelling glimpse of top-level racing at its rawest before the money men got hold of it" Mark Tucker, Bike
