5.0 out of 5 stars Epic battles and incredible spectacles. 23 Sep 2009
By @GeekZilla9000 TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This DVD starts with the usual rundown of team changes, and after Fittipaldi moved to a small all-Brazilian team, James Hunt took his place in the McLaren. The season then became one of the most spectacular in F1 history, and this disk gives you the chance to experience some of it...

Lauda made an authoritative start to the season and had a couple of straight wins with Hunt snapping at his heels. By the third race Hunt stole a win from Lauda - but the Austrian was sporting a couple of broken ribs at the time! The battle between the two for the Driver's Championship was fought both on and off the track as disqualifications were appealed and sustained and the two drivers tried to concentrate on getting in the car and getting the job done.

1976 also saw a radical design with the Tyrrell when it started the season with 6 wheels. Both front wheels turned and the experiment paid off when the cars performed well and even clinched a 1-2 win in Sweden.

As with the other DVDs in this collection, the Monaco Grand Prix is given special attention and the narrator even remains quiet for a few moments after inviting us to simply take in the sights and sounds of the day - we are then treated to the raw sound of engines roaring around the historic track.

Stirling Moss appears regularly in this DVD, he is seen interviewing many of the drivers in a very warm and friendly manner. His interviews with James Hunt provide a lot of humour, especially Hunt's cheeky reply to the question "What are your tactics for this race?"; "Cheat at the start!". After being disqualified (and later reinstated) for having a car slightly wider than regulations allow, Hunt is seen grinning whilst wiping a sticker on the back of his McLaren which reads "Caution Wide Vehicle".

I own many of these titles from the Brunswick archives and I am mostly pleased to have them, they are the only way to see the formula one scene as it was from 1970 to 1980. In many ways I feel that formula one was better in this period for out and out racing, wheel to wheel action and before money rules and sponsors took away many of the reasons why we watched formula one in the first place, action!. These DVD's however are frustrating beyond belief as no actual real racing action is captured on them as Brunswick only use there own footage taken often from one corner on the track and it shows, painfully badly. Nothing worse than watching the drivers put on their helmets for five minutes, sit on the start line wiating for the lights, only for the picture to pause and the announcer to say "And Jones won the race" So where was the race, let me see it, please !!! While races are omitted there is also the totally dreadful der,der,der,der der, der der der der music as the results are being shown, trust me it drives you mad, it will have you screaming for the remote to turn it down. Why cant they use TV footage, this DVD gives you a good feel of the period lets you see some of the great drivers, all too many are not around anymore and it is nice to own, but it is annoying, you have been warned.

Good to compare a 'then' and 'now' example of how people went motor racing. Feel the need for speed!! This is never dull.
