The 1993 500cc World Championship should have been remembered for a blistering title battle between two of the fastest motorcycle racers of their time. Instead, it will forever be remembered for the terrible accident which ended the racing career of one of the greatest riders ever, three-times World Champion Wayne Rainey.
This Official Review captures the dramatic highs and lows from a controversial season, including reigning World Champion Rainey producing some of his most stunning performances ever. The Team Roberts Yamaha star had to dig deep as he fought to overcome the record-breaking pace of Lucky Strike Suzuki rival Kevin Schwantz.
Schwantz stretched his advantage during the mid-season as Rainey struggled to find pace and a resurgent Mick Doohan recovered from injury to become a race-winner. But Rainey refused to be beat, findings his form again to take a slender championship lead with just three races to go. It looked set to be a thrilling finale, until that fateful fall at Misano brought Rainey’s racing career, and the championship fight, to an end.
This Official Review delivers the full story of an historic season, with extensive practice and race coverage from all 14 rounds. Stunning action footage, including plenty from on board the bikes, lets you relive each race – including the classic showdowns in Germany and Japan. Along the way we witness the precocious talents of Daryl Beattie, Alex Barros, Shinichi Itoh, John Kocinski and Britain’s Niall Mackenzie.
Throughout the Official Review there are interviews with all the leading riders, team bosses and famous faces – including Barry Sheene and Damon Hill. The review concludes with an emotional interview with Rainey some months after his crash, in which he talks of the challenges, his hopes and his thanks to the thousands of fans who supported him and his family.
