About

The Czechoslovakian GP was make or break time for Wayne Gardner. The Rothmans Honda rider had been steadily closing the gap to Eddie Lawson but was left with an uphill task at Brno. The sidecars were also heading for a showdown. Rolf Biland's runaway lead had been eroded by Webster & Hewitt. Watch the action and drama unfold lap by lap! The 250s meanwhile, were still in the throes of their season long battles, the title contenders being Sito Pons and Juan Garriga. It was a day when titles were won and lost, and one was still in the melting pot for Brazil. Put yourself in pole position for all the action!
