About

Pundits who said Freddie Spencer was pushing his luck attempting to go for the World Championship in two classes were silenced when he took a superb victory at Mugello. This film illustrates the superiority of the Hondas in the hands of the Louisiana star and provides knuckle-whitening excitement with a ding-dong dice for third place between Gardner, Mamola and Sarron. The world's finest riders reached the extremes of adhesion in their endeavours to win. Thrill to the pursuit of Spencer by Eddie Lawson. Admire the doggedness of British ace Ron Haslam. Chart the rising progress of the Heron Suzuki in Skoal Bandit colours under the throttle hand of Rob McElnea.
