Relive one of the greatest 500cc World Championship showdowns of the 1980s on DVD. Comprehensive, action-packed coverage brings you the full story of the inaugural Australian Grand Prix from Phillip Island on Sunday, April 9th, 1989.
The first motorcycle Grand Prix to be held in Australia delivered one of the most memorable races of the 1980s, with the biggest names locked in a titanic battle for victory right down to the wire. Wayne Gardner shrugged off the pressure of racing at home to reel in Wayne Rainey, setting up an awesome race-long dice. And with Christian Sarron and Kevin Magee getting involved, the lead seemed to change on every one of the 30 laps.
Superb camera angles bring you all the action as the leading group use all the track - and a bit more - as they fly into corners three abreast in a desperate bid to snatch victory. On-bike cameras give you the rider's-eye view from Magee's machine as he races alongside the leaders and from Malcolm Campbell's bike as it leaves the circuit at speed.
There's also interviews with many of the stars, including Gardner, Rainey, Kevin Schwantz and Freddie Spencer, plus GP legends turned team bosses Kenny Roberts and Giacomo Agostini.
This DVD also includes highlights from the 125cc and 250cc races, featuring Sito Pons and Luca Cadalora, plus a brief look at Aaron Slight in Superbike action
