Product description

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 West German Grand Prix from the Nurburgring on Sunday, May 24th, 1986.

With double World Champion Freddie Spencer still out of action due to injury, all eyes were on Yamaha's Eddie Lawson. The super-confident Californian was bidding to further increase his championship lead at the third round of the season, ably supported by Yamaha teammate Rob McElnea. Leading the Honda charge would be the fabulous Wayne Gardner.

Superb camera angles bring you all the action as Lawson leads the way, chased throughout the 30-lap battle by Gardner. One of the undoubted highlights is the fairing-clashing dice between Gardner and Mike Baldwin as race unfolds.

There's also interviews with many of the stars, including Lawson, Gardner, McElnea, Baldwin and Spencer, determined to end speculation of a rift with Honda and impending retirement.

This exceptional record also includes coverage of the 25-lap 250cc race, as Yamaha's Carlos Lavado and Honda's Anton Mang battle around the challenging Nurburgring, plus highlights from the opening round of the 1986 Sidecar World Championship.
