Duke is proud to announce the release of an amazing collection which brings together fast and furious action from a history-making decade of the Isle of Man TT.
Picking up where the 1985-99 TT box set left off, this 12-disc collection features comprehensive official reviews of every TT meeting from 2000 to 2009, with coverage of every Practice Week and action from every race.
Each year's review is bristling with the very best footage, including the skilful combination of on-bike, trackside and aerial camerawork which has allowed coverage of the TT to remain at the cutting edge. Plus, of course, there are plenty of interviews and bonus features.
The collection is full of heroes, legends, iconic machines and era-defining moments which brought the TT into the 21st century, and saw the event through its 100th anniversary and beyond.
Of course, there was no racing in 2001 due to the outbreak of Foot-and-Mouth Disease, so there is no review DVD for that year. Instead, to ensure fans receive 10 DVDs and a complete story of the decade, Duke has included the critically-acclaimed documentary TT: Centenary Celebration, presented by Murray Walker.
Altogether, this box set provides viewers with more than 35½ hours of edge-of-the-seat and fascinating entertainment.
The collection opens with the review of 2000, an amazing year which saw 48-year-old Joey Dunlop defy his critics to take yet another big bike win, and claim two more victories towards his record-breaking TT tally. What none of us knew as Joey showed the young pretenders the way was that we were witnessing his final TT – but it was a performance which wonderfully summed up the talent, commitment and humility of the great man.
The review also marks the ascendency of another great name now lost from the TT – David Jefferies, who would have dominated the year had it not been for William Joseph Dunlop. In addition to all the race action, the review includes rider biographies, a complete on-board lap with Iain Duffus, Peter Kneale's All Time TT Greats, a tribute to Joey and more.
In 2002, following the cancellation the previous year, the TT was back with a bang, and all the explosive action can be relived again in the official review. The astonishing DJ took his own lap record of more than 125mph – set in 2000 – and smashed not once, but twice, setting a new benchmark of 127.29mph. The year will also be remembered for the popular win by Manxman Richard 'Milky' Quayle. The review includes a TT preview with Jefferies as well as a complete onboard lap with the much-missed racer.
Despite amazing racing, the 2003 TT will be remembered for the tragic loss of David Jefferies. The DVD review pays tribute to DJ, and records all the action as his teammate Adrian Archibald, still shaken by the loss, took two marvellous wins, perfect tributes to Jefferies.
