Brilliant Tony, couldn't understand much of the audio, but lots of fantastic footage there.

It does visit Imatra later but I think this sets the mood for the film.

 

Can you see todays' prima donas visiting not only Imatra but the old Brno, Opatjia and Clermont Ferrand. see how long it would take Marquez to stop finding the limit purely by falling off at every bend. :well:

What a brilliant film, those lamp-posts and trees at Clemont Ferrand looks terrifying. Those boys were fantastic what they had to endure. It was amazing how Yamaha kept the sport together for all those years. Barry Sheene summed it up by the amount of French riders competting with  their sponsors. We took a lot for granted.

Well done.

Roy  :clap:  :lol:

The first part of the movie is indeed an on-board visit of Imatra , commented by Michel Rougerie. That's where the lamp posts and trees are ( not at Clermont, only guardrails there ! ....) Then there's a lap of Paul Ricard with Phil Read during the "opening credits" and then the film follows the season chronologically.

Is it as wrist splittingly depressing as the original?
