Transatlantic Challenge 1988 and 1991 DVD - Description

The Transatlantic Challenge was the ultimate two-wheel showdown – the best racers from the United States travelling to Great Britain to do battle with a spectacular line-up of racing rivals.

Classic circuits, a variety of machines and riders from different disciplines – it had all the essential ingredients of a classic confrontation.

Now, for the first time on DVD, you can relive highlights from two incredible and very different years of this exceptional competition. The films are packed with incredible action footage, featuring every vital moment from some of the closest racing you’ve ever seen. With no championship title at stake, the racers were free to do battle in every race – and the elbow-to-elbow dices captured in this breathtaking footage shows they were holding nothing back.

The 1988 meeting, named the Eurolantic Challenge to reflect the fact the USA stars would face rivals from around Europe, was a two-day feast of thrills and spills as a six-race series unfolded at Brands Hatch and Donington.

The US team was filled with superbike experts, including Doug Polen and Bubba Shobert, while the Euro-squad boasted British greats Ron Haslam, Roger Burnett, Roger Marshall and Trevor Nation alongside European colleagues like Swede Anders Andersson.

The Americans were determined to dominate, but they would be made to work hard in all six races from the two-day grudge match.

After an absence of three years, the contest returned in 1991. Once again it was the Transatlantic Challenge, but now the greats of the United States would battle the Best of British.

The legendary Freddie Spencer would lead the talented American team as they battled through six races at Mallory Park and Brands Hatch against some of the biggest names in British racing. Haslam led the home squad, which featured John Reynolds, Carl Fogarty, James Whitham, Rob McElnea, Niall Mckenzie and Ray Stringer.

It was supposed to be about national pride, but the Brits were so dominant it soon became a fight for individual bragging rights – like the incredible dice between Haslam and McElnea in the very last race!

Awesome action footage, detailed commentary and interviews with the stars bring you comprehensive coverage from two years of one of the most spectacular motorcycle contests ever seen.
