The 2011 FIA World Rally Championship saw the dawn of a new era, and delivered more action and drama than ever!
Now you can relive the entire breathtaking season in almost 8 hours of spectacular footage across two discs. It was a year of down-to-the-wire finishes, massive crashes, bitter rivalries and outstanding performances, plus a title battle that ran to the very last rally of the season. With blistering action from every round, plenty of in-car footage, interviews and in-depth analysis, the official review is the comprehensive record of an unforgettable year.
Reigning World Champion Sébastien Loeb, incredibly targeting an eight title victory in a row, soon found himself under pressure from new teammate and fellow Frenchman Sébastien Ogier, who made his mark in the early season. Ogier’s charge, which had included the closest-ever WRC finish – 0.2 seconds in Jordan – was hit by controversy and bitterness as the rivalry between the Citroën stars exploded on the dusty stages of the Acropolis and rain-hit tarmac of Germany.
The Ford pair of Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala faced an uphill struggle, but clever teamwork and misfortune for Loeb, including a huge crash in Australia, ensured the title fight would go to the final rally, in Great Britain, with just a handful of points between Hirvonen and Loeb, and a rejuvenated Latvala on the charge of the season.
Plus, there was the remarkable return of Mini, as Dani Sordo and Kris Meeke took stage wins and podiums, as well as battling for victory, in what was supposed to be a development year! Plus, keep an eye out for the antics of Formula One World Champion Kimi Räikkönen and American superstar Ken Block – including his 13G barrel-roll.
Alongside the most spectacular action footage, the official review features truly in-depth analysis of the pivotal moments of the season, explaining how events were won and lost, as well as revealing interviews with all the stars as the headline-making drama unfolds.
