Following last seasons DVD of highlights that was Reloaded, I must say that I was a little disappointed with the content of Showdown as I thought it would be a longer viewing experience. The highlights start in Monte Carlo and less than an hour later you are watching Petter Solberg driving into Margam Park! Given the endless footage available I really think the producers would give more time to each event.As one reviewer states, this was one of the closet fought seasons and really did go down to the wire with Loeb,Solberg,Sainz and the unfortunate Richard Burns battling for the championship. That said the pictures are great and the dvd does a good job of covering all the teams including Skoda and Hyundai. The biggest improvement for me was the extras. These are much better than the previous dvd and really give a bit more meat to the bones of the rest of the disc.I thought the Tommi Makinen tribute was a nice touch (although a little short). Maybe they could have done something on Colin Mcrae as it may be the last season we see him contesting the WRC! Overall I agree with the other reviewers in that any fan of the WRC will enjoy and want this dvd. Hopefully next year lets see more action - even if it costs more!
