Audi videos; more or less complete list
Here is more or less a complete list of Audi videos available in the US in
VHS/NTSC standard. (Other titles are available if you have a PAL/SECAM capable
VCR.) If anyone knows of other NTSC titles I would like to be advised. FYI,
NTSC is the standard used for tapes, VCR's and TV's in North America, Japan and
certain other parts of the Far East.
The Audi Quattro Experience: mostly rally action as opposed to the experience
of owning one, and therefore in contrast to the other tapes in this series.
Audi Quattro-The Official Story: Originally entitled " The Triumph of an
Idea", a factory film. Covers rally success, Pikes Peak, Trans Am, IMSA and
Touring car. Interviews, etc.
Auto Union Racing Cars: sort of related. There is a one volume factory tape,
"The Silver Arrows from Zwickau." There is also a two volume history from
Chris Nixon called "Racing the Silver Arrows", the same title as Chris' book.
These are both wonderful, but of no interest if you are solely a modern Audi
Quattro Racing in the US: Covers two things-the 88 Trans Am and the 89 IMSA
There is of course lots and lots of rally footage with Audi starring. Some
The Rally Supercars: 4 films on Group B cars, one on the Quattro Sport.
Single best rally tape for excitement purposes.
World Rally Reviews and Compilations from relevant years, particularly 85 and
A three event review of 84 is available called A Tale of 3 Rallies (Monte
Carlo. Sweden, Portugal).
Twilight Zone, mentioned in some of the postings: Two films, the first is
Twilight Zone, the '82 Swedish rally, focusing on 3 Quattros of Mikkola, Mouton
and Blomqvist. The second film is on the "77 Rallye de Portugal, of less
interest to Audi fans.
Rally Champions of the '80's: covers the Audi years.
Individual rally tapes: available for most Group B events in 85 and 86.
The two rally crash tapes don't have much Audi (maybe Audis don't crash?!) :-)
TOURING CAR TAPES:
The 1996 British Touring Car tape should be great with the A4 as winner. That
tape will be available AT THE END OF NEXT WEEK!!!! and I have my order in.
Otherwise, there is very little Audi on the German, British, Australian or
Italian Touring Car tapes that are available in NTSC.
All of these tapes are available at a variety of sources. Classic Motorbooks
have some, Duke Video has some, Motorcam has some, Minigrid in Canada has
some, Rallysport has some. From my checking all the catalogs, the only place
that has all of the above is Autogalerie Ltd., 412-741-9472. If you have any
questions on any of the tapes, I will be happy to tell you what I remember or
give you my impressions.
