This is still good even now
16 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is purely a bike enthusiasts film which it lives up to dated now but i was in silver stone when some footage was shot which adds some memories for me,it was the Marlboro transatlantic trophy if i remember rightly around 1978 i was up in the stand then which then looked like something still under construction ,when a voice came over the Tanny to announce when the silver bike comes around everybody to wave and cheer this was for film footage i was to find out later n the day.It is a special film to me even today i still watch it and still i get hairs on back of my neck standing up .As i say this film i think is for bike enthusiasts who i feel without doubt they will enjoy and want to watch again like me .
