© 1996 Formula One Constructors Association (FOCA). The last full year review of the Formula One Grand Prix season issued by Pioneer LDC (1996 - Damon Hill F-1 Drivers Championship winner).

Unlike most of the previous Pioneer F-1 laserdisc releases from 1987 on this is not a Japanese production but is direct lift from the DUKE Marketing 1996 review as released in the UK/worldwide on VHS video in December 1996.

The English commentary that was on the original DUKE VHS video has been replaced by a Japanese commentary that is on the DIGITAL tracks only - the ANALOG tracks have no commentary so during the short "NEW REGULATIONS FOR 1996" section there is on sound at all on the ANALOG tracks. All the drivers & team members comments have Japanese subtitles.

This looks to be the last Pioneer F-1 GP laserdisc released & appears to have been pressed in much lower numbers than previous Pioneer F-1 laserdisc issues - now quite hard to find.
