Turbo monsters: recapture the 1980s magic
Win a F1 Reviews 1980-1989 box set worth £109.99 each!
The newly released F1® box sets from Duke Video® capture the essence of four decades of Formula 1 racing in handsome collections that look as good on your shelf as they do on your TV. Duke went back to the original masters to complete the digitisation of the reviews that had previously been released on DVD, ensuring that the transfers are at the highest quality and the DVDs in your collection represent the ultimate record of 40 unforgettable years of action at the pinnacle of motorsport.
The 1980 to 1989 set covers a decade of incredible change and growth in F1 as the sport finally put the FISA-FOCA wars behind it and embarked on the turbo era in earnest. As the British McLaren and Williams teams found their stride and the cars improved in quantum leaps, they were piloted by drivers with the flamboyance and skills to equal the loud and lively cars. Legends were born as Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell, Nelson Piquet and others thrived in the ultra-competitive environment, pushed on by the ever-increasing popularity of the sport thanks to the effects of improved TV coverage.
The official reviews of the seasons began in the 1980s, and watching these programmes now it is fascinating to see how they developed over the years. There were experiments with narration – including having the drivers themselves provide the commentary – and the running time of the shows, but the overall picture is one of excellence almost from the word ‘go’. For real Formula 1 fans, the sets are a time capsule to be savoured and enjoyed time and again.
