This DVD delivers race action from all 10 rounds of the 1987 championship, from the opening rounds in Spain to the final weekend in Japan, visiting Silverstone, Brands Hatch, Spa and the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours along the way.

The once-dominant Rothmans Porsche team would see its turbo-charged 962Cs humiliated by the Tom Walkinshaw-prepared V12 XJR-8 Jags, with the British marque securing victory in all but two of the season's races. Jaguar may have left the others behind, but that didn't mean the racing wasn't dramatic! Among the highlights on this DVD are the 1.6 second victory margin in the opening race, the rain-hit Monza round, the Belgium deluge and many more.
