Product description

"The TT film which started it all.....while the video was essential viewing for anyone into bike racing back in the eighties, it's still as riveting and viewable 30 years later" Streetfighters

The Island is not only an action-packed look at the 1980 TT racing; it is a fascinating snapshot of the excitement, entertainment and enthusiasm which sustained this festival of speed. We witness the Grand National Motocross event, with Andy Roberton leading the way, the extraordinary Arena Trial, featuring stars like Martin Lampkin, and multiple Speedway World Champion Ivan Mauger in grass track action. Then there’s time to meet the fans and sample the other off-track entertainment enjoyed in 1980!

There is also plenty of intense race action from around the Mountain Course to enjoy, as TT greats like Charlie Williams, Mick Grant, Ron Haslam, Mick Boddice and Joey Dunlop do battle. Highlights include the Senior, Junior, Formula Two, Formula Three, Sidecar and Classic TT races. The Island also remembers the days of early morning practice, shows legends Mike Hailwood and Stanley Woods setting off for a parade lap and Williams offering a guided tour of the iconic 37¾-mile circuit.

The Island truly captures the incredible atmosphere of the 1980 TT and, as Motorcycle News said when the film was first released, it is one “not to be missed”.
