This box set contains 10 discs boasting more than nine hours of fast and furious race action from a golden era of sportscar competition.
All the classic encounters, awesome machines and driving legends of the ’80s are here.
Enjoy again the fabulous Rondeaus, the mighty Rothmans Porsches, the unforgettable Tom Walkinshaw-prepared Jaguars, plus Sauber Mercedes, Peugeot, Aston Martin, Lancia and more roaring around the famous Circuit de la Sarthe, covering thousands of competitive miles with speeds hitting more than 230mph on the daunting Mulsanne straight.
Although these films are form the very early days of motorsport review videos, the excellent camerawork – including plenty of in-car footage – and informed commentary bring you all the action, drama and excitement that makes Le Mans such an exceptional event.
There’s also interviews with the stars, and a real flavour of the colour and atmosphere Le Mans is famous for.
Relive the exploits of Jacky Ickx, Derek Bell, Jochen Mass, Martin Brundle, Al Holbert and many, many more in the ultimate record of a decade of incredible racing.
Each year is also available individually.
‘Remember the days when your shelves were lined with clunky VHS cassettes, once a symbol of cutting-edge capitalism for the modern age? Duke was one of the first specialists to tap into this fresh form of home entertainment. Increasingly its range of documentaries are being converted to DVD format and its 1980s Le Mans reviews are among the first subjects to receive such treatment. Camerawork that seemed impossible 28 years ago looks touchingly primitive now, of course, but much of the footage still warms the heart. It’s also nice to see the cramped old Le Mans pits, to marvel that such conditions could have been regarded as acceptable (or remotely safe)…..and then to remind yourself it wasn’t all that long ago.’ Simon Arron, Daily Telegraph
