Product description

"This DVD demonstrates why it remains a great sport........the North One footage is exceptional and comes from all angles" - Autosport

The Official Review of the 2008 FIA World Rally Championship brings you action and drama from all 15 rounds of what proved to be a truly record-breaking season, packed with thrills, spills and spectacular skills.

Citroen superstar Sebastien Loeb not only claimed a record-breaking fifth World Rally Championship title, he also re-wrote the record book along way, including becoming the first driver in WRC history to win 11 events in one season, win the same event seven times in a row, the first to win the Monte-Carlo rally five times and in Argentina four times.

He dominated the 2008 season, proving his skills in all conditions and on every terrain.

Loeb wasn't the only record-breaker. Title rival Mikko Hirvonen, who headed the championship battle early in the season, became the first driver to score points in every single round. Ford teammate Jari-Matti Latvala also claimed his place in history when he became the youngest person ever to win a WRC event.

The best camera angles, plus plenty of on-board and in-car footage, bring you all the vital action, controversy and shocking smashes from another dramatic season. The bizarre head-on crash which forced Loeb out of the inaugural Jordan rally,Gigi Galli's leg-breaking smash, the demanding frozen stages of Rally GB, the exceptional consistency of Hirvonen on snow, gravel, tarmac, ice and mud - every essential moment is here.

This was also the year the WRC bid a fond farewell to an icon - the Subaru Impreza saloon which had been a popular fixture for 15 years. At the Acropolis Rally the familiar Impreza was replaced by the new-look hatchback version, and we join team boss David Richards and drivers Chris Atkinson and Petter Solberg for a close-up look at the new challenger, as well as a look back at its predecessor.

"The World Rally Championship might not have featured the closest finish in the world last season, but this DVD demonstrates why it remains a great sport. Check out any of the Jari-Matti Latvala in-car, particularly the monster moment mid-way through a snowy left-hander that could have cost him his maiden WRC win in Sweden. And then there's Finland, for the biggest battle of the year. As engaging as the Loeb-Hirvonen scrap is, you'll simply never tire of watching these cars flying for mile after mile. And the highlight of that highlight is undoubtedly Toni Gardemeister escaping from the biggest of moments in fourth gear - you won't stop rewatching that one for a long time. Given that Gardemeister and Suzuki (and Subaru, of course) are now part of WRC past, it's worth buying this film as a record of the SX4 WRC's sole season at the highest level. As you'd expect, the North One footage is exceptional and comes from all angles - with wicked amateur footage neatly stitched in" Autosport
