Transatlantic Bundle - Description

A double-header offer featuring both volumes of the popular Transatlantic Challenge Races DVDs

Transatlantic Challenge 1984-87

In the mid-1980s some of the best riders in the world were brought together for the Transatlantic Challenge, testing their skills in a range of different events, with races on Grand Prix machines, unlimited cc Superbikes and more.

These DVDs bring you incredible highlights from the 1984, '85 and '86 meetings at Donington, plus the '87 meetings held between Donington and Brands Hatch.

The entry lists read like a who's who of motorcycle legends - including Barry Sheene, Ron Haslam, Wayne Gardner, Mick Grant, Kenny Roberts, Freddie Spencer, Eddie Lawson, Randy Mamola, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz and many, many more.

This is fast and furious racing. With no championship at stake, and national pride at the fore, these guys are really going for it, and that guarantees some incident-packed racing - such as Haslam's massive off in '84.

There's also plenty of on-bike footage courtesy of the likes of Spencer and Gardner.

Transatlantic Challenge 1988 & 1991

The 1988 meeting, named the Eurolantic Challenge to reflect the fact the USA stars would face rivals from around Europe, was a two-day feast of thrills and spills as a six-race series unfolded at Brands Hatch and Donington.

The US team was filled with superbike experts, including Doug Polen and Bubba Shobert, while the Euro-squad boasted British greats Ron Haslam, Roger Burnett, Roger Marshall and Trevor Nation alongside European colleagues like Swede Anders Andersson.

The Americans were determined to dominate, but they would be made to work hard in all six races from the two-day grudge match.

After an absence of three years, the contest returned in 1991. Once again it was the Transatlantic Challenge, but now the greats of the United States would battle the Best of British.

The legendary Freddie Spencer would lead the talented American team as they battled through six races at Mallory Park and Brands Hatch against some of the biggest names in British racing. Haslam led the home squad, which featured John Reynolds, Carl Fogarty, James Whitham, Rob McElnea, Niall Mckenzie and Ray Stringer.

It was supposed to be about national pride, but the Brits were so dominant it soon became a fight for individual bragging rights – like the incredible dice between Haslam and McElnea in the very last race!

Awesome action footage, detailed commentary and interviews with the stars bring you comprehensive coverage from two years of one of the most spectacular motorcycle contests ever seen.
