Grand Prix: The Killer Years DVD - Description

Mechanical failture, lethal track design, fire and incompetence snuffed out dozens of eager young drivers, who had become almost expendable.

It was the 1960s and the early 1970s and this waste of life was often televised for millions to see.

With boycotts of the prestigious Belgian and German Grand Prix, drivers fought to get their voices heard, but it would be a long and painful time before conditions changed.

Featuring many famous drivers, including three World Champions - Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, Emereson Fittipaldi and John Surtees OBE - this shocking film explores an era of racing drivers taking control of their destiny and fighting for safety to come first.

Exclusive DVD extras:

  • Powerful deleted scenes and bonus interviews
  • Sir Jackie Stewart on how to drive faster
  • A tragic story from Emerson Fittipaldi
  • Jackie Ickx on how to succeed
  • Exclusive interview with Jacqui Hamilton
