THREE rounds of the Australian Touring Car Championship from the early to mid 1990s have been released on DVD – and they’re bound to keep fans of the early years of the Ford and Holden V8 category excited!‘

Winged Warriors’ is the latest release in the Seven Sport’s Magic Moments of Motorsport DVD series and is available to order now here from the V8 Sleuth Online Bookshop.

After years of various manufacturers under international Group A rules, Australia opted to go ‘back to the future’ in 1993 with a rulebook underpinned by Falcon and Commodores V8s going head-to-head.

First up on this DVD is Round 4 of the 1993 ATCC from Lakeside in Queensland where the roaring Fords of Alan Jones, Glenn Seton, John Bowe and Dick Johnson head the field in a pair of 28-lap contests.

Then there’s Round 4 of the 1994 ATCC from Phillip Island where wet weather caused chaos in Mark Skaife’s bid to win the first four rounds of that season in a row and reigning champion Seton ended up with the overall on a wild day of racing.

Finally, this DVD has action from Round 7 of the 1995 ATCC at Eastern Creek in Sydney with Bowe, Seton, Jones, Skaife and Peter Brock vying with 21 other drivers for crucial championship points.

As an added bonus – where possible – all of the action filmed during the commercial breaks of the period has been included, so you don’t miss a second of these important races from Australian touring car history!

This DVD is a must-have for your collection of Seven Sport Magic Moments of Motorsport titles, celebrating the classic Ford versus Holden battles that have underpinned Australian motorsport history.

Running time is just under four hours.
