"I challenge you to sit still in your armchair" Classic Racer
The Kennedy International North West 200 is one of road racing’s most demanding events, and in 2009 the world’s top riders faced the additional challenges of rain and strong winds. The Official Review brings you the fast and furious action from all five incident-packed races as the NW200 proved again it is one of the fastest and toughest road races on Earth.
Superb camera angles, including plenty of jaw-dropping on-bike footage, put you at the heart of the action as the likes of John McGuinness, Steve Plater, Bruce Anstey, Guy Martin, Ryan Farquhar, Alastair Seeley and the Dunlop brothers battle for the same inch of tarmac at speeds in excess of 180mph.
Take the best seat in the house as Michael Dunlop and Christian Elkin go head-to-head in the shocking 250cc showdown, Plater and Anstey dominate the Superbike and Supersport races, Alastair Seeley recovers from a sickening crash – captured by his on-board camera – to battle with Farquhar in the Superstock and William Dunlop puts in a masterful display in the 125cc event – the only race of the day which didn’t see a red flag!
Fantastic action footage, interviews with the stars and expert commentary from Keith Huewen, Steve Parrish and Phillip McCallen bring you the comprehensive story of the 80th anniversary running of the Kennedy International North West 200 2009.
Plus, there are three complete on-board laps of the legendary 8.9-mile Triangle circuit courtesy of Michael Dunlop, Bruce Anstey and Cameron Donald.
"Equally as good as the TT review, the Official North West 200 Review, with the stunning helicopter shots, showing just how important slipstream is at the North West. And the on-bike camera action is scary. If anyone wanted proof how hard these boys are trying around the Triangle then they only need watch the ill-fated on-bike dice between Michael Dunlop and Christan Elkin.
