Product description

Experience the roller coaster 1997 World Rally Championship in this action-packed review of all 14 incredible rounds.

Car-mounted cameras, onboard footage and fascinating interviews put you at the heart of the drama in a down-to-the-wire title battle between some of the greatest rally drivers ever.

The opening rounds were dominated by the new-look Subaru Impreza, with Britain's Colin McRae securing his first victory of '97 in the heat of the Safari Rally.

Reigning World Champion Tommi Makinen was soon in contention in the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IV, and Spain's Carlos Sainz overcame early season reliability problems in the Ford Escort to join the title battle.

Throughout the season, the likes of Juha Kankkunen, Kenneth Eriksson, Britain's Richard Burns and Piero Liatti couldn't be discounted.

A series of mechanical woes left McRae's championship hopes in tatters, but in typical style the indefatigable Scot pressed on to take back-to-back wins and set up a last round title decider on Britain's RAC Rally.

While McRae needed to win, sixth place would be enough for Makinen to take the title - and the championship was settled by a single point.

Action-packed footage, shocking crashes and an intense title battle - this is rallying at its best.

'Duke's terrific collection of World Rally Championship reissues on DVD continues to offer fantastic nostalgia trips for rally fans....the seasonal reviews are great - all work in the Motorsport News office ground to a halt as we relived Colin McRae's glorious 1995 WRC success' Motorsport News, July 2008

'Relive the end of the Group B rallying era and the start of the Group A revolution with Duke's superb season review DVDs. The years 1985 to 1991 are available now and make perfect gifts for the anorak and bobble hat brigade. Muddy brilliant!' Autosport November 2007
