|Bike Grand Prix Review 1992 DVD
The 1992 500cc World Championship looked like being a walkover for Rothmans Honda’s Australian maestro Mick Doohan, but in a season rocked by injury nothing could be taken for granted.
This is the Official Review of an historic and action-packed year when the championship battle would go right down to the final lap. It features almost three hours of drama covering all 13 rounds, plus interviews and practice coverage.
From the opening round in Japan, Doohan romped to victory after victory, while his rivals fell victim to accidents and injury – most notably Wayne Gardner, whose leg-breaking smash at race one put him out of action for six rounds. Despite storming performances from reigning World Champion Wayne Rainey on his Team Roberts yamaha and Lucky Strike Suzuki’s Kevin Schwantz, the title looked like it was heading Down Under – until cruel fate intervened.
An horrific practice crash at the Dutch TT left Doohan on the sidelines until the penultimate round, while Rainey, Schwantz and a recovering Gardner ate into his massive championship lead. The gripping story would all come down to the very last round, with Doohan and Rainey separated by just two points.
Along the way we experience truly classic Grand Prix encounters – not least the Dutch and Hungarian thrill rides – and share the closing chapter in the careers of two legends, Eddie Lawson and Wayne Gardner.
This Official Review delivers pulsating action from all 13 rounds, including practice coverage and stunning race footage, interviews, on-board drama and a behind-the-scenes look at a cagiva test session. This is the comprehensive and dramatic story of a roller-coaster season, and an edge-of-the-seat finale.
