GRAND PRIX GREATS is a Victory by Design special that takes a selection of the most important Grand Prix cars from the beginning of Grand Prix racing up to 1960 and includes famous names such as Bugatti, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Mercedes and Auto Union.
De Cadenet drives unique examples as ever, including a 1908 Panhard, a 1914 Mercedes GP, the awesome two engined Alfa Romeo Bi-motore and a world beating 1939 Auto Union Type D.
The programme finishes with the Cooper Climax, the car that transformed post war racing when constructor John Cooper put the engine in the rear of the car, a development that ensured Grand Prix racing would never be the same again.
DVD Extra: A private tour of the world's largest collection of Grand Prix cars.
Victory By Design is a landmark award winning documentary series, which profiles the most important examples of iconic motoring marques. Programmes cover Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, Porsche, Ferrari, Jaguar, Ford, Lotus, Corvette, and some of the most important grand prix cars ever built in Grand Prix Greats, all shot in international locations: driven and presented by race car expert Alain De Cadenet with the result that presenter de Cadenet has now probably driven more important race cars than anybody alive today.
The programmes are all action, with minimal archive and interviews, relying on action of the cars to tell the story. Individual cars are the most authentic of their type, rarely seen and often come from private collections and museums.
The programmes are produced by Gemini Pictures and directed by feature film and documentary filmmaker Tony Maylam (White Rock, Across the Lake, a Fast Drive In The Country).
