The 1980 Indianapolis 500 was a remarkable race for a few reasons, perhaps most notably for the extraordinary performance of Tom Sneva, who started the race dead last in 33rd place – before slowly working his way through the whole pack to 1st position.

The race in commentated by Jackie Stewart, Chris Schenkel and Jim McKay, and it all runs just under 2 hours and 30 minutes in length – making it a great little Sunday afternoon watch.
