The North West 200 has always been big, but in 2002 it was bigger and better than ever. 130,000 fans lined the 8.9 mile circuit to see their heroes in action.
Michael Rutter hoped to equal his father's tally of 11 race wins but a run of bad luck scuppered his chances. 'Flying Kiwi' Bruce Anstey had more luck; he achieved a dream debut and wrote his name in the history books as the first newcomer to win at the NW200. But perhaps the highlight of the day was the supremely intense battle between Adrian Archibald and Iain Duffus in the Feature Superbike Race. The pair were so close, the clocks couldn't separate them and as they crossed the line they were neck and neck!
These official highlights feature the best action from hotshots such as David Jefferies and Richard Britton, John McGuinness and Jim Moodie and of course Ian Lougher who racked up a fistful of fastest laps.
Rider interviews and background info plus a superb commentary from Keith Huewen add to this road racing spectacle. And best of all: specially filmed on-board shots put you right in the thick of the action around the 'Triangle'.
This is the big picture, the inside story, the definitive record. So sit back and enjoy a concentrated blast of road racing in its purest, scariest form!
