£14.99 from DukeVideo.com.

29 minutes running time.

Cheesey 80s music and Dickie Davies preseting gives a very nostalgic feel to this historic racing event, featuring a lot of 1600cc Mk2 Ford Escorts!

Great, classic footage from some all-time greats, shame there’s only 29 minutes footage though!

Recommended.
