Product description

Take a journey through a decade of World Superbike racing; a decade when riders traded blows on and off the track, the races really were elbow-to-elbow and the only things bigger than the crowds were the egos!

The 1990s really were the heyday of Superbike racing, a time when the British – and one Brit in particular – made the headlines. Now you can relive it all in action-packed footage and exclusive interviews, with an epic Britpop soundtrack.

Carl Fogarty, the four-times World Champion, James Whitham, Neil Hodgson and Frankie Chili reveal what is was like to race in these turbulent years, and what they really thought of each other and rivals like Scott Russell, Aaron Slight, John Kocinski and Anthony Gobert.

There are revelations, including Foggy admitting deliberately trying to knock a rival off and what he really thought o f the fans, stunning racing, like 1997 at Hockenheim and 1998 at Assen, plus the ‘inside line’ on a spectacular decade from commentators Julian Ryder and Keith Huewen.

The DVD also recalls the road racing days which led Foggy and others to World Championship competition, including some fierce showdowns at the Isle of Man TT, and remember the day that defines this heady chapter in World Superbike racing – the 1999 Brands Hatch meeting where 121,000 British fans cheered on their heroes.

DVD-exclusive bonus features include extended interviews with Fogarty, Chili, Whitham, Ryder and Huewen.
