during the offseason i am thinking about purchasing tapes of some races i havent seen. my first GP was the season opener in 1999. so, any recommendations on some very good races between 1978 and 1998 would be appreciated. thanks :)

Monaco 1982. But you can fast fotward to about 5 laps before the end. Show starts then.
Or Monaco 1985 - that's how you'll become an Alboreto fan.

San Marino 85 was fairly full of incident.

Silverstone '87 - I was never an "Our Noige" fan but he was fantastic there.
Portugal '85 - Senna magnificent in the wet.
Monaco '92 - last few laps were magnificent.

Donington 1993. Magic.

Brazilian GP 1989. The first race after the turbo era, Mansell's surprise win for Ferrari, Johnny Herbert's amazing debut.

Austria and Monza '76 (ok two years "too early" but I had to mention them)

About Monza: "I just had a look at the whole Monza '76 GP on tape. Fantastic battle for the lead btw - between Depailler in the 6wheeler and Peterson. 3 (!) Ferraris (Lauda, Regazzoni, Reutemann) on the grid - Lauda fastest Ferrari pilot in his first GP after the accident!"

South Africa 1978 - after that race you don't want to see any modern F1 race anymore - believe me :cool:

Germany 1981 (superb "Windschattenschlacht" at Hockenheim)

Austria 81 (superb racing)

Spain 81 (the first 5 (!) cars in 1.24 seconds in the end)

...so lot's of great racing especially in '81...

Perhaps it would be smart *not* to mention the "surprise" winner *before* Nustang70 has seen the race on video. ;)

Highly recommend austria 76 if you can get your hands on it (i presume you're buying from same person i did). Leaders fighting 3 abrest on the main straight for the first 20 laps, cars moving around like they should. Brilliant.

Anything with Gilles Villeneuve is always good for entertainment. Specifically, Long Beach 79, Holland 79, France 79 (the famous arnoux v's villeneuve battle).

France 1980 is another underated race. Alan Jones thrashing the ligiers and renaults on the home turf. Some very good action in this race too.

Just about any race at long beach and zandvoort was very entertaining in that era too.

Absolutely! Perhaps more overtaking in this single race than in all races of modern F1 in the past 3 years....

Overtaking's all very well and good, but did any of those 1970s races resemble a chess match? I think not. :)

Where is the best place to buy racing videos? Chaters? Does anyone knows if earlier races, 60's and Monza '71 is available on tape?

;) thanks for looking out for me, but they catalogue i am ordering from lists the winner directly next to the GP, for every GP in the catalogue. so...it will be very difficult to not know the outcome before i see it. : i will still enjoy them though. (i hope!)
btw, thanks for all of our help so far guys. :up:

I don't get why they list the winners... Do they list also right to every Hitchcock movie: "the murder is...."? :drunk:

Perhaps your wife/ girlfriend can order them for you? If you know the results *before* seeing for example Monaco 82, South Africa 78, Austria 76 or Spain 81 it's only half the fun ... I try always not get any spoilers before seeing races from the old days.

I'm pretty sure there was another thread a few months ago with agp with about the same question!
There were quite a few great GPs in 1989 - Brazil, Canada, Portugal and Australia are definite musts!
As Monaco 82 and 85 are mentioned - how about Monaco 84 (okay, shortened...). Mexico 1990 wasn't bad either.
And then you have the pair of Spain 1981 and Hungary 1990......
