Relive one of the greatest 500cc World Championship showdowns of the 1980s. Comprehensive, action-packed coverage brings you the full story of the dramatic Dutch Grand Prix from Assen on Saturday, June 29th, 1985.
World Champion Eddie Lawson was determined to cut the title lead of fellow American Freddie Spencer at the Dutch TT, but he would have to contend with driving rain and some very determined rivals. Spencer and Christian Sarron were out early, leaving the door open for Lawson to pursue and pass second-placed Ron Haslam. However, his bid to catch runaway leader Randy Mamola ended in disaster for the normally 'Steady Eddie'.
Superb camera angles, including superb on-board footage of the rain-lashed Assen circuit courtesy of Mamola, bring you all the action as one of the most dramatic GPs of the 1980s unfolds. There are also interviews with the stars, including Lawson, Spencer, Haslam and Mamola.
The film also features highlights of the breathtaking 250cc race, as Toni Mang battles from 29th to first in treacherous conditions, only to find himself under intense pressure from rivals including Martin Wimmer, Carlos Lavado and Spencer during what proved a truly gripping contest.
