First a word of warning.... The quality of the colour is not what we're now use to! After a while, you get use to seeing Brownish Red rather than Scarlet Ferrari's.
I could not believe how quickly the first watching went. The pre-race / in-car trip around the course is absolutly intreging. Such narrow, poorly pathed road's that hardly have a lenth of straight from one bend to the next. No wonder the drivers loved it.
The race has some terrific footage that's as good as (possibly better) than what we see nowaday's. It was riveting stuff with good commentry.
I'll be watching it again (and again).
Highly recomended.... wonderfu

An eye-opening d.v.d. for any modern motor racing enthusiast, on what was considered an acceptable level of safety for an international motor race, e.g. posters telling residents to keep theirs dogs indoors on the day of the race.The content and quality of the d.v.d.is acceptable considering it was shot on film nearly 50 yrs ago, and on such a long circuit they could not have a camera crew on every corner.

brilliant when cars were cars designed by human hand and not CAD. real men driving real cars no gizmos to aid the driver your average formula one driver would fill his pants with no traction control. seat of your pants stuff. When tuning a car and driving a car was done by absolute skill no plugging into a lap top. when the driver knew his stuff and the mechanics even more.

Racing as it was before health and safety prevailed dangerous yes but all competing we're aware of the risks shame this pure type of sport has dissappeared

A great film documenting the world's last great road race. Shame it hasn't been released in widescreen. Looks like a transfer from video rather than film. The Ford XR4 marketing film at the end may interest Sierra fans but was not much of a bonus once you'd watched the film. It maybe better watched as an intro to the film rather than a bonus

Great cars. Raymond Baxters commentary wonderful so clear and concise. A true gentleman he does not talk over the engine noise

This DVD covers the subject quite well for its time. Quality not the best, but worth the cost. However, I enjoyed it

Priceless views of what must have been one of the greatest races ever held. Undoubtedly dated but that's offset by the real period feel and the pure emotion of the crowd watching Nino Vacarella on his home turf. There are many highlights, however, John Whitmore searching for a missing wheel spinner in the Sicilian countryside must be one!

Fantastic and Vaccarella's comment that current F1 racing provides him with the best sleep for the week is a trueism
