Product Description

Great Italian GP Racers DVD
The world of motorcycle racing has produced many exotic machines and few are more interesting and exciting that the Italian multi.

The names alone – Moto Guzzi, Gilera, MV Agusta – immediately conjure up images of the glorious days of World Championship racing in the Fifties and Sixties. The sights and sounds of these Latin racers provoke evocative memories�

This superb in-depth documentary from producer David Wood, encapsulates the history and colourful stories of the Italian multi in the years between 1949 and 1976.

When the FIM instituted a world championship for 125, 250, 350, 500 solos and sidecars in 1949, the Italian factories were prime challengers. With competition intense and rivalry fierce, poaching of designers, mechanics and riders was not uncommon. The chance the reign victorious was of paramount importance.

Witness here the memorable championship years, with superstars Duke, Surtees, Agostini, Liberati, McIntyre, Masetti, Hailwood, Hocking, Ambrosini, Milani, and other riders as their sleek, thoroughbred bikes howl round the great circuits of the world – the Nurburgring, Assen, Spa, Monza and the Isle of Man.
With nostalgic archive racing action, interviews and unique insights, the change of the Italian Fire Engines (so called because of their scarlet tanks) is a compelling tale.

As these fascinating stories unfold, relive the glorious sights and sounds of these 1,2,3,4,6, and even 8-cylinder machines on the absolute limit with the Great Italian GP Racers.
