About

With Championship leader Eddie Lawson nursing an injury and Christian Sarron dominating practice, the French GP looked like a foregone conclusion. But what unfolded was one of the most intense and captivating races ever. For lap after lap Sarron, Wayne Gardner and Kevin Schwantz traded the lead until, from nowhere, Lawson muscled his Marlboro Yamaha to the front.

Superb camera angles bring you all the action as the drama unfolds in the blistering sun. With just three laps to go, World Champion Gardener looked certain to win, but cruel fate intervened on the very last lap - and our cameras were there to capture the heartbreaking moment.

The 1988 French GP was sensational from start to finish, and this DVD brings you every vital moment from a truly historic race. There's also interviews with Lawson and Gardner.

This exceptional record also includes coverage of the fantastic 250cc event, which saw Sito Pons and Jacques Cornu locked in a race-long slipstreaming duel while others, including Juan Garriga and Luca Cadalora, fought their own battles throughout the field. Plus, there's a short look at Jorge Martinez's 125cc victory.
