Southern 100 - 60 Years of the Friendly Races

Southern 100 - 60 Years of the Friendly Races

Running Time: 120 minutes

19.99

The Southern 100 is a remarkable road race that has always been so much more than the sum of its parts.

Nicknamed the ‘Friendly Races’ for the warm welcome it extends to all who race or watch, for sixty years the Southern 100 has been a firm favourite on the road racing calendar.

Raced on the technical 4.25 mile Billown Course, which has hardly changed since the first races in 1955, greats like Bob McIntyre, John Hartle, Joey Dunlop, Ray McCullough, Brian Reid and Phil McCallen have carved their own pieces of Southern 100 history. Some racers have become almost synonymous with ‘Southern’, in particular Ian Lougher and Chris Palmer, who each became great supporters of the races and in return received plenty of support from the fans.

This DVD has mined a rich vein of nostalgia to bring together a fascinating history of the first sixty years of the Southern 100. Packed with footage and photographs showing some of the most memorable moments from Derek Ennett’s win in the inaugural 350cc event to the great battles between Guy Martin and Michael Dunlop of recent years, this is a superb memento of an historic year for the Southern 100.

For more than a century motorcyclists have rightly regarded winning the Isle of Man Senior TT Race as the zenith of two-wheeled achievement.

Many of the biggest names such as Woods, Guthrie, Duke, Surtees and Hailwood are engraved on the base of the iconic statue of Hermes first presented by The Marquis de Mouzilly St. Mars in 1907.

In the late ‘80s competition was particularly fierce as ‘King of the Mountain’ Joey Dunlop fought off the growing challenge of the young pretenders like Carl Fogarty and Steve Hislop.

As Hizzy and Foggy stretched themselves the scene was set for one of the most exciting TT races of all-time; the 1992 Senior.

Records were shattered and a new generation of heroes inscribed their names in the history books.

Whether you were there the first time around or are just discovering the excitement of TTs past, you’ll love this release from Duke Video which brings together original TV highlight programmes from eight years of brilliant racing.

Please note: This DVD has been put together from original footage which may be of lower quality than modern standards. It’s still awesome

Before World Superbikes there was another World Championship for production-based motorcycles: The TT Formula 1.

As its name suggests the main event took place on the Isle of Man TT Mountain Course and formed the centre piece of the Tourist Trophy after it ceased to be a Grand Prix World Championship round.

The rivalry between the major manufacturers was intense as - unlike Grand Prix racing - Joe Public could go out and buy a bike very similar to the winning machine.

This collection of programmes captures the authentic atmosphere of the event between 1987 and 1994 in the original highlights packages broadcast on the fledgling BSkyB.

Greats like Joey Dunlop, Steve Hislop, Carl Fogarty and Phillip McCallen were winners during this era but other equally talented riders made their very best efforts to take the laurels.

Steve Cull, Trevor Nation, Johnny Rea, Robert Dunlop and Roger Burnett are just a few of the huge field of riders who took on the challenge of the 37.73 mile Mountain Course.

Some of the most memorable TT moments took place in the F1 race including Steve Hislop's breathtaking ride in the 1989 race or his Norton heroics in 1992.

Featuring RC30s, Norton Rotary, Yamaha OW01 and Honda RVFs this is a high octane blast down memory lane.

Note: This product features original footage which may be grainy or lower quality than modern standards

Honda's T.T. Golden Years

Honda's T.T. Golden Years

Running Time: 77 minutes

Ever since Soichiro Honda visited the Isle of Man in 1954 there has been a special affinity between the Japanese marque and the TT races. In a new release from Duke Video, Honda's Golden Year TT Years DVD examines, year by year, the extraordinary success the company has enjoyed at the world-famous tournament. Soichiro Honda did much of the market research for his products, as far as travelling to races all over the world and examining the machines of his competitors. His dedication took Honda motorcycles from a disappointing finish in their first international race in 1954 to a manufacturer's team prize in the 1959 Isle of Man TT. Quoted as saying, "only by winning at the Isle of Man TT can we open our way towards becoming a world enterprise and to selling our product internationally," these words would resonate through the years as Honda produced some of the most memorable machines and greatest champions the world would ever see on two wheels. The DVD stars TT top guns such as Mike Hailwood, Jim Redman, Steve Hislop, Carl Fogarty, Phil McCallen and the late, great Joey Dunlop, the film features road racing of the highest calibre. The 1967 Diamond Jubilee Senior TT shows the great battle between Hailwood and Agostini in all its glory. Original commentary from a young Murray Walker adds a touch of class, while the DVD invites fans to turn up the volume and reminisce with a 'Sounds of Honda' featuring some fearsome howls of the classic machines that have resonated through the years. (From Golden Wings magazine of the Honda Owners Club - Summer 2003 issue.)
