Enigmatic, charismatic, hugely popular...and one of the world’s greatest and most exciting rally drivers, Ari Vatanen remains one of the most memorable stars of the Eighties and early Nineties. The dramatic style that brought him wide-ranging international success still has the power to get the adrenalin going as you’ll find in this compelling DVD! We find Ari in New Zealand just days before he led the 1992 Rally of New Zealand in his Subaru. Not only does Ari talks about his competition career but you can also hear his views on life in general and enjoy archive action footage from most areas of his competitive life. Superb!
Following a nostalgic look at pre-race activities, a classic confrontation ensues in the 1950 Senior TT - a classic confrontation between the established Norton works riders Artie Bell, Harold Daniell and Johnnie Lockett and team ’newcomer’ Geoff Duke. After a runaway first Isle of Man win in the previous year’s Clubmans event, Duke was up against formidable opposition in his first Senior TT, not only from his experienced team mates but also from Les Graham (AJS Porcupine) Reg Armstrong (Velocette) Harold Daniell (Norton) and Bob Foster (Velocette). So with the first ever one-piece leather zipped up tight, head on tank and both wheels powering through some memorable drifts, Geoff Duke set about casting the mould of an historic racing career.
Only one thing was better than the brilliant weather at TT 2006 and that was the speed of the world’s most famous ‘real roads’ course.
This review takes you trackside using cameras on bikes, kerbs and helicopters to capture wheelies, jumps and white-knuckle corners at rubber-stripping speeds.

If you thought in-car TT ’88 was a nail-biter then wait until you watch this sequel with rally ace Tony Pond at the wheel of a standard production Rover 827 Vitesse his second bid to be the first person to lap the Isle of Man TT circuit at over 100mph in a four wheeled vehicle.
Tony an Isle of Man resident and Britain’s most famous rally driver almost made it during his attempt in 1988. For his 1990 challenge he chose to do it witout a navigator. This meant a useful weight-saving - particularly effective on the 1000 feet climb from sea-level to the highest point on the circuit - but would require Tony to have perfect memory and knowledge of the TT courses 100+ bends in order to break the record. This tape tells the full story of a remarkable achievement and captures the excitement and thrill of the record run itself via the use of on-board cameras. The end result is probably the best quality point-of-view footage ever recorded actually during a record attempt or motorsport event. We defy you not to be impressed as you enter corners where the average car and driver would be on-the-limit at 70mph at nearly double that speed.
