What do you think of when someone mentions the 80s? Does it bring images of pastel coloured suits, slip-on shoes with no socks, George Michael, Madonna and people with big hair?

Aside from the above it was also the decade that brought you the following champions: Walter Rohrl, Ari Vatanen, Hannu Mikkola, Stig Blomqvist, Timo Salonen, Juha Kankkunen and Miki Biasion.

Now rally fans can enjoy a look back at the action packed decade of drama, controversy, triumph, tragedy and the main subject of the DVD, the champions.

Featuring footage that has never been released before this great documentary explores the icons of the decade and the cars they drove including the Audi Quattro, Sierra Cosworth, Toyota Celica and Lancia Delta, plus Group B rockets like the Peugeot 205 T16, Metro 6R4, Lancia S4 and Ford RS200.

Along with this the DVD pays tribute to Michelle Mouton, the first woman to win a World Rally Championship event and Markku Alen, who held the title for a handful of days in 1986.
