About

With double World Champion Freddie Spencer still out of action due to injury, all eyes were on Yamaha's Eddie Lawson. The super-confident Californian was bidding to further increase his championship lead at the third round of the season, ably supported by Yamaha teammate Rob McElnea. Leading the Honda charge would be the fabulous Wayne Gardner.

Superb camera angles bring you all the action as Lawson leads the way, chased throughout the 30-lap battle by Gardner. One of the undoubted highlights is the fairing-clashing dice between Gardner and Mike Baldwin as race unfolds.

There's also interviews with many of the stars, including Lawson, Gardner, McElnea, Baldwin and Spencer, determined to end speculation of a rift with Honda and impending retirement.
