Motorcycle Road Racing
Inside Track Eddie Lawson
A 1988 intimate portrait of the great four-time 500cc World Champion, Eddie Lawson, and the Marlboro Yamaha team, managed by the legendary seven-time World Champion Giacomo Agostini. We show you how a GP bike is designed and constructed, the extraordinary skills require to race and win with it – and we also show you how it compares with a supercar of the period.
Eddie Lawson will go down in history as one the greatest motorcycle road racers of all time. Lawson won the 500cc World Championship four times during the 1980s. When he retired from GP racing in the early 1990s, he ranked third on the all-time 500cc Grand Prix wins list with 31 victories.
In addition to his international accomplishments, Lawson was equally successful on the domestic front. The Californian won the AMA Superbike Series twice (1981 and 1982) and the AMA 250 Grand Prix Series in 1980 and 1981. He was inducted into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 1999.
