    The recommended retail price for the combo set will be £24.99.

    Synopsis and video about the restoration follow...

    The most dangerous game ever devised, to pit man against man, flesh against steel, the figure-8 race!

    Rick Bowman is a street punk who winds up in jail after a street race goes wrong. Bailed out by race promoter Grant Willard, Davalos is put in the deadly track where he comes up against Haig’s maniacal winner Hawk Sidney. Featuring an outstanding supporting cast, Pit Stop is one of Hill’s lesser known films but arguably his greatest.

    Filmed on a real figure-8 track, Hill and his crew were able to capture gripping real-life car wreck scenes lending the film a brilliant sense of realism. You’ve never seen a motion picture like this before, can you take it?
