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 Nations Grand Prix from the Italian Monza circuit on Sunday, May 24th, 1987.
American Randy Mamola was eager to defend an early season World Championship lead, but Honda's Wayne Gardner and reigning champion Eddie Lawson were the men to beat. The pair enjoyed an early dice before Australian Gardner secured a commanding, and unassailable lead. Behind them, though, the battle raged as five riders, including Mamola, Christian Sarron, Rob McElnea and Ron Haslam, fought for the final podium position.
Superb camera angles bring you all the action as the thrilling five-way contest unfolds, including the heartbreaking moment when Mamola crashed out just two corners from the chequered flag. Plus, there's Kevin Schwantz's remarkable ride through the field.
There's also interviews with many of the stars, including Lawson, Gardner, Schwantz and team boss Kenny Roberts, explaining why he returned to the Grand Prix track after four years in retirement.
This exceptional record also includes coverage of the awesome 250cc race, as Toni Mang, Reinhold Roth, Dominique Sarron and more battle each other, and the Italian heat, in a desperate tussle for victory.
