Complete your rallying DVD collection with Duke

11 March 2010

If you enjoy your rallying, then Duke's latest DVD offer is just for you as it brings together some of the most spectacular and critically-acclaimed programmes together into an affordable collectors' set.

Four thrilling titles have been made available - The Colin McRae Collection, the WRC Crash Collection, the Too Fast To Race series and The Complete Crash Kings: Rallying – with hours of footage collected from one of the world's most spectacular sports to enjoy time and again.

The Colin McRae Collection – 2-disc set, £19.99
Colin McRae - Rally Legend is the only authorised DVD tribute, tracing his entire life and career in interviews and stunning action footage. In 2007 a Duke production team was working closely with Colin McRae to produce the definitive DVD biography. Tragically, McRae, his son Johnny and two family friends died in a helicopter crash shortly after filming was complete.

With the full agreement of the McRae family, the unseen film was combined with the most incredible action footage from throughout McRae's career to create the ultimate tribute to a true legend. In exclusive interviews, McRae talks frankly about his career and private life, opening up to friend and biographer Derick Allsop about the highs and lows, the
rivals, the cars and more.

Action footage from throughout his stellar career is combined with film from 2007, including the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and appearances at events like the X-Games. There's also touching contributions from family, including dad Jimmy, and colleagues. The RAC 1995 is the complete review of the unforgettable event where McRae secured his only World Rally Championship, fittingly on British soil.

McRae and Spanish rival Carlos Sainz went into the final round of the 1995 World Rally Championship tied on points, and with everything to play for. This programme charts the entire story of McRae's heroic bid to become Britain's first World Rally Champion, with amazing action footage, including plenty from inside the leading cars, and interviews with the stars as the championship chase builds to its nail-biting climax.

The WRC Crash Collection – 3 Volumes, £17.99
In the World Rally Championship anything can happen – and usually does! This 3 volume collection lets fans experience the most spectacular, shocking and hilarious incidents from almost two decades of high speed drama.

Each DVD contains exceptional action footage, including plenty from inside the cars, featuring many of the biggest names from the history of World Rallying, including Colin McRae, Sebastien Loeb, Richard Burns, Tommi Makinen, Marcus Gronholm, Carlos Sainz, Petter Solberg and many, many more. Viewers are treated to breathtaking action sequences showing the very best drivers coping with tough terrain, treacherous weather, terrifying drops, wild animals and everything else that makes the WRC one of the most thrilling spectacles on Earth.

Fans find out the stories behind the footage in interviews with top team bosses like Malcolm Wilson, famous drivers and some of the best co-drivers in the business, including Phil Mills, Robert Reid, Nicky Grist, Daniel Elena, Timo Rautiainen and Luis Moya. Plus we find out why McRae considered amputating a finger!

Too Fast To Race and Still Too Fast To Race – 2-disc set, £15.99
The two-disc set delivers more than two hours of stunning footage of high-powered monsters doing what they did best! Group B was conceived as a return to the 'good old days' when amateur and factory teams could run the same production-based cars in either sports car racing or championship rally events.

In the first of the two programmes we explore the full story of Group B and see iconic machines, such as the Ford RS200, Lancia 037 Rally, Lancia S4, MG Metro 6R4, Peugeot 205/T16, Audi Quattro and Renault 5 Turbo, in action and in stunning close-up thanks to mind-blowing contemporary and archive film.

The second programme sees World Rally Champion Stig Blomqvist push some of the most memorable machines to the limit, a priceless opportunity to see Group B cars restored to their breathtaking glory!

The Complete Crash Kings Rallying – 4-disc set, £17.99
We've scoured thousands of hours of footage from around Europe to bring fans hundreds and hundreds of the most shocking and spectacular rolls, smashes and crashes. This is the best - and worst - of rallying mishaps, day and night, on dirt and snow in a staggering variety of different cars. Hair-raising on-board camera footage feature with hundreds of events spanning more than ten years.
