The historic parkland setting of Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough, delivered another vintage race meeting for the 2012 International Gold Cup, and now you can experience all the vital highlights in this truly action-packed review.
There’s a massive 16 races to enjoy as we bring you the elbow-to-elbow antics from among the two-strokes, SuperTwins, 600s and 1000s, plus all the paint-swapping drama of the three F2 sidecar showdowns.
The trackside cameras capture the jaw-dropping action, while the on-board footage puts you right at the heart of the racing as the stars do battle around the tree-lined 2.43-mile circuit.
Victory in 7 of the races was claimed by less than 1.5 seconds! This is truly close racing - you won’t want to look away from the screen in case you miss something.
Tyco Suzuki’s Guy Martin was the undoubted man of the meeting, only missing out on six wins from six starts due to an electrical fault, but he had to fight hard against greats like the Padgetts Honda pairing of John McGuinness and Bruce Anstey, as well as Dean Harrison, one of road racing’s fastest rising stars.
Plus, there are outstanding rides from Ian Lougher, Davy Morgan, James Cowton, Chris Palmer, Michael Pearson, Ivan Lintin, Jamie Hamilton and William Dunlop to enjoy.
The three-wheel action is intense, and not just because Michael Dunlop made an amazing sidecar racing debut with passenger Dan Sayle! The battles throughout the field in all three races will have you glued to the screen, especially the epic dices between the outfit of Ian and Carl Bell and the legend Dave Molyneux, partnered by Patrick Farrance.
The 2012 International Gold Cup review also pays tributes to one of the sport’s biggest stars, Ryan Farquhar, the 99-time winner at Oliver’s Mount who retired during the season. We hear from the man himself about the tough decision to quit racing, and enjoy the emotional parade laps led by Ryan, as he is joined by the likes of McGuinness, Martin and Ian Hutchinson.
