Motorsport News' 'Pick of the Week' - "Very good value for money.....bumper 336-minute long show"
This 2-disc set contains action from eight of Europe's top car and motorcycle drag racing classes.
These are the fastest race machines on the planet, and with over 100 teams taking part, the championships are hard-fought battles of speed and attrition. Catch the close racing, the record-breaking runs, and the metal-crunching mishaps when it all goes wrong.
With 8000bhp and speeds of over 300mph, it's a fine line between glory and disaster - these racers are true modern day gladiators.
Features more than 3½ hours of action from England, Norway, Finland and Sweden, plus interviews and fascinating technical features.
"The two-disc DVD season review of the FIA European Drag Racing Championship should come with a warning from your bank manager. Not because it is expensive: with plenty of action it is very good value for money. The problem is British fans only get two chances to witness Top Fuel dragster action at home and this DVD covers the continental rounds in such detail it will encourage viewers to book flights and hotels for next year's events in Finland and Sweden as soon as possible.
"Far from just a round-up of race winners, the set also captures the off-track drama in as much detail as the racing. Interviews with the team engineers help fans and newcomers get a much better understanding of this technology-led sport.
"And there is enough footage there to keep the die-hard fans happy until the season resumes at Santa Pod at Easter. Better still, all five of the FIA professional classes get equal billing in the bumper 336-minute long show" Motorsport News, December 2008
