BBC: The Racing Collection brings together four outrageous, no-holds-barred documentaries that bring you inside the extreme world of auto racing. Everything from the rallying craze of the 1980s, to the dangerous and controversial races that were the Grand Prix and the 9000km Paris-Dakar rally. Plus the incredible story of the life of Joey Dunlop, one of the most remarkable racers of all time.
In the 60s and 70s it was common for Grand Prix drivers to be killed racing. After much waste of life, the prestigious Belgian and German Grand Prix would be boycotted, drivers insisting that safety be put first. This film tells the story of how Grand Prix drivers rebelled against the powers that be, took control of their destiny and were no longer at the mercy of track and car design failure.
