Product description

The Pirelli Classic Marathon is a celebration of a Golden Era of British rallying, bringing together an amazing collection of vintage cars for an epic journey across Europe. 

Open to cars over 20 years old, the Classic Marathon combines speed tests, long runs through glorious scenery and gruelling climbs through mountain passes in the longest event of its kind in the world.

In 1989, a fantastic line-up of cars and competitors gathered in London for the start of the 2,000-mile event that would cross six countries.

Triumph, Jaguar, Healey, MG, Morgan and even a 1934 Talbot - these were the cars which dominated the glory years, and now they would have their time in the spotlight once again.

Among the determined drivers were some real stars, including Stirling Moss at the wheel of an MGB, Paddy Hopkirk in a Mini Cooper S, Roger Clarke and co-driver Tony Mason in a Ford Cortina, and Scandinavian World Rally greats Ove Andersson and Timo Makinen.

This review of the 1989 Pirelli Classic Marathon follows the action from London to Italy, via Belgium, Germany, Austria and the former Yugoslavia. 

Along the way there are speed tests at the classic Nurburgring circuit, 300 miles of mountain driving across Austria and Italy, plus the incredible challenge of the Stelvio - more than eight miles and 48 hairpins, all uphill! 

Plus, there is the amazing experience of joining Moss inside the MGB as he tackles some of these remarkable challenges.

Commentary comes courtesy of the always-entertaining Murray Walker, but the real soundtrack to this DVD review is the evocative sound of these era-defining motorcars.

This programme is brimming with wonderful footage of classic cars set against a glorious backdrop of stunning scenery, and many truly unmissable moments from a marvellous event.

Classic Marathon 1989 is part of a collectable set of wonderful Classic Marathon reviews.
