Relive one of the greatest 500cc World Championship showdowns of the 1980s on DVD for the very first time. Comprehensive, action-packed coverage brings you the full story of the dramatic Belgium Grand Prix from the legendary Spa Francorchamps on Sunday, July 7th, 1985.
Championship-leader Freddie Spencer put on a masterful display to take his Rothmans Honda to another win, but behind his serene ride to victory there were dramatic battles throughout the field. Eddie Lawson and Christian Sarron traded blows as they battled for second, while Ron Haslam, Randy Mamola and Raymond Roche diced for lap after lap.
Superb camera angles bring you all the action as the 500cc machines twitch and slide around the iconic 7km circuit, with incredible footage capturing the drama as the motorcycle negotiate the awesome track. Mamola brings viewers incredible pictures from his on-board camera, including edge-of-the-seat trips through Eau rouge from the rider's eye view, high-speed racing just inches from rival riders and the spectacular spill which brought his battle with Roche and Haslam to an end.
There's also interviews with many of the stars, including Lawson, Spencer, Sarron and Mamola, plus informed commentary from Chris Carter.
This is an exceptional record of a race which would prove vital in the outcome of the 1985 World Championship.
