Festival of 1000 Bikes, incl.Return of the Kings (2 Disc) DVD - Description

Mallory Park was the venue for an astounding gathering of iconic motorcycles and racing greats, and now you can experience the incredible sights and sounds of the VMCC’s 2011 Festival of 1000 Bikes. This event saw Grand Prix legend Kenny Roberts return to the track, joined by many of the sport’s biggest names.

Join more than 20,000 enthusiasts at the Festival as we see the motorcycles and meet the stars in this highlight-packed DVD review. There are interviews, close-ups of the exotic machines and, most importantly, plenty of action-packed footage of famous, significant and simply spectacular bikes on track.

On the first disc we hear from experts, organisers, exhibitors and famous guests including ‘King’ Kenny, Giacomo Agostini, John Cooper, Steve Baker, Phil Read, Graeme Crosby, Sammy Miller, Jim Redman, Kork Ballington, Tommy Robb, Niall Mackenzie and Alex George.

We also meet the men who keep important historic machines in working order, including Phil Morris, Mike West and Ferry Brouwer of Yamaha Classic Racing Team, and see their glorious motorcycles up close.

There are highlights from seven track sessions, and we haven’t added commentary so you can thoroughly enjoy the roar of classic motorcycles in action. Among the sights and sounds to enjoy are Miller with the Gilera 500, Mackenzie on a Yamaha TZ250, Baker on a Yamaha OW31, Redman on a Honda CR750, Charlie Williams on Yamaha TZ385, Ballington on a Kawasaki H1-R-A, Read on a Yamaha RDC05 A, Mick Grant on a Suzuki RG500 and Trevor Nation, Terry Rymer and Ian Simpson on Rotary Nortons.

Plus, Ago on the MV Agusta 500/3 goes head-to-head with Cooper on the BSA Rocket 3 in a 40th anniversary celebration of the 1971 “Race of the Year”.

Of course, we are treated to glorious footage of Roberts on the iconic Yamaha OW60, including a bonus feature of more than 20 minutes of on-board footage courtesy of King Kenny.

The second disc features Return of the Kings, a chance to hear the legends who attended the 2011 Festival reminisce. Roberts, Agostini and Crosby recollect the great races, rivalries, danger and controversy of their eras. There are contributions from Steve Parrish, Alex George, Mick Grant and archive footage of these icons in action.

As a bonus on the second disc we have extended interviews with George, Ago, Croz, King Kenny, Grant and Parrish.

"This twin-pack of DVDs showcases 2011's Festival of 1000 Bikes, organised by the Vintage Motor Cycle Club at Mallory Park, and the return to the track of the great King Kenny Roberts, as well as many other greats of motorcycle past. Re-live what 20,000 visitors saw first-hand" Motor Cycle News
