» Sideways in a D-type! DVD - Race with Win Percy at Goodwood
£12.00



<BGSOUND SRC="startup.wav" LOOP=0> XKD 505 Wins at Le Mans in 1955 - now racing again!

In 1955, Mike Hawthorn won the Le Mans 24 Hours race for Jaguar driving a D-type, Chassis No XKD 505 and carrying the registration 774 RW.

The ex Mike Hawthorn D-type, XKD 505, rebuilt and actively campaigned around the world, was raced in the Sussex Trophy at the fabulous Goodwood Festival of Speed on September 8th 2002, driven by Win Percy.

774 RW had a miniature video camera fitted to the left side of the wraparound windscreen by Win's shoulder and the whole of warmup and the race itself was recorded with full sound! It is remarkable and absolutely riveting coverage with very little vibration induced by the D-Type and its 3.8 Litre engine running flat out at racing speeds.

Win subsequently recorded full commentary for each lap that makes this even more interesting to watch as he carefully analyses every bend and overtaking maneuver plus the hairy moments!

We are producing a limited number of copies of this DVD as the original production run completely sold out - they will be supplied in DVD-R format. Note that some DVD players will not play DVD +/- R format discs. They will always play on a computer though in the unlikely event that you have problems.



DVD Contents
1955 Le Mans footage - Tour of Le Mans 1956 with Mike Hawthorn
Exclusive Interviews with Win Percy and Norman Dewis
Pre-race Warmup Lap with Commentary
The 14 Lap Sussex Trophy including TV Coverage - Full 14 lap race Commentary

Classic Racer Tony Dron says "I've never seen anything of its kind that's so exciting" Paul Skilleter: The 14 lap race itself is covered in its entirety, so you can 'live' the race yourself in real time!

Reviews
"Not produced by a top-level film company, this DVD is nevertheless a superb example of race-driving at its finest. One can imagine Hawthorn, Hamilton and Moss circulating at much the same sort of speed in the ‘50s. Tony Dron, the other protagonist, rates it highly, in fact he's "Never seen anything of its kind that's so exciting".
Classic Driver E-Magazine

"The mixture of driver's eye view and trackside camera sequences - often shown together, so that you can see how Win reacts to situations from inside the cockpit as you follow the car's progress from the outside - work extremely well. Another aspect I liked was that the 14 lap race itself is covered in its entirety, so you can 'live' the race yourself in real time; so often with such films, editing cuts out some laps and thus destroys the continuity. But here, you get the build up of excitement from the warming up lap, the start and through the entire race, complete with the drama of the dice with Tony Dron in the younger and more nimble Ferrari. I found it particularly fascinating to see how these two highly experienced and highly competitive drivers dealt with race tactics, their cars and each other.
