2.0 out of 5 stars Too short with no detail or extras, 8 May 2006
This review is from: Btcc Review: 2005 [DVD] (DVD)
Having been involved with the 2005 BTCC I purchased this DVD so I could sit down and look back at an action packed year but was highly disapointed.

The DVD is basically the ITV coverage of the BTCC season which has been chopped up (badly) and stuck on a DVD.

Don't get me wrong, the ITV coverage and commentary from Tim Harvey and Ben Edwards is first class. But at least if you watched it at the time on ITV you would watch the 3rd race live so would actually see the whole race.

On this DVD it feels like they have tried to fit the whole season into too short a space by editing and chopping up every race. As a result they have not done any justice to what was an exciting 2005 BTCC season.

There was also very little interviews with the drivers or teams and viewers were not given the full picture. And having been there and seen the full picture you realise how much they have either chopped out or failed to film in the first place.

If you have watched and recored the ITV coverage of the 2005 BTCC season then this will be the same but with most of the interesting bits chopped out.

It is still an interesting watch but is disapointing as it could of been so much more. If you haven't seen any of the ITV footage though, then this DVD is still worth buying as there is some great bumper to pumper driving with a few good spins and crashes thrown in!

I would have given it 3 stars but they (for reasons unknown) cut out a fantastic overtaking manoeuvre by our driver :o)

2.0 out of 5 stars Great action, but nowhere near enough detail, 25 Dec 2005
This review is from: Btcc Review: 2005 [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD shows the action well, but it's simply ITV's coverage taken and plonked onto a DVD. The action is great, but there is nothing new about what we see. Each race is covered sufficiently though, although sometimes you notice a driver jumping several places when it appears they have not overtaken anyone!
Sadly, there is no mention of the pitlane gossip and banter between the main drivers in the series: Yvan Muller, Jason Plato and Matt Neal.
I enjoyed watching the DVD and think it's value for money, but the DVD could be so much better of more effort was put into it.
