A breathtaking account of duels in the sun and rain between some of the sport's most promising young drivers. All eleven rounds recorded on one thrilling review.
This film is at full throttle from the start at Jerez until the last checkered flag is waved at Dijon-Prenois.
The pace is immediately set for the rest of the series by a determined Roberto Moreno of Brazil who obviously sees this championship as a stepping stone on the way to F1 big time. He is not going to let anyone stand in his way, but other young lions such as Gachot, F3 Champion Johnny Herbert, and Martin Donelly have the same idea.
The stage is set then for a dramatic and memorable series in which the dreaded black flag plays a leading part. Round 1 saw the ebullient Johnny Herbert romping home in fine style having led the field for most of the race. Things go horribly wrong later in the season at Brands Hatch as the gutsy Brit gets caught up in a horror crash, smashing into the armco at over 100mph, precipitating a multiple-car pileup as he ricochetted across the track demolishing everything in his path. At the restart there were just six cars on the grid...
The series was a battle between the much acclaimed Reynards and Lola 88Ds and, during the final round, with some spectacular wheel-to-wheel duels as the championship leaders fight for the final - vital - points.
