05/12/2008 ‘GT Racer’: Historic Racing TV Series Released on DVD Two-title set available at an introductory price
‘GT Racer’, the acclaimed six-programme TV series directed by Alexander Davidis first aired on television this year, is now available to a worldwide audience. The multi-DVD set includes footage from the 2007 historic racing season, and includes classic races from Spa, Silverstone, Oporto, the Nürburgring and Lime Rock.
Each race is covered from the perspective of different competing drivers and teams, and follows the emotions of a typical historic racing weekend. The production - that includes much in-car camerawork - is typical Davidis: short sections of vibrant colour and action cut together in an almost ‘Frankenheimer-esque’ way.
Davidis’s first film on the subject, ‘Shaken & Stirred’, covered several entrants in their efforts to win the 2006 Spa 6 Hours. A successful debut film, it was, in effect, a pilot for the six-programme ‘GT Racer’.
To celebrate the release of GT Racer, Spirit Level Films is giving away ‘Shaken & Stirred’ (normally £9.99 on DVD) as well as the DVD box set of ‘GT Racer’ at a reduced price of only £19.99 plus postage & packing. It is PAL and NTSC / All regions compatible.
That’s a £15 saving - or 40% discount - on 7 hours’ worth of classic motor sport. And a handy way of spending the Christmas holiday in front of the TV, while looking forward to the 2009 season...
There’s just time to put your order in for shipment before the festive season, so please click on www.spiritlevelfilm.com/gtracer to buy the double DVD set at the special launch price.
