"...a real treat for Group C fans" Autosport
Relive the drama, action and controversy of the 1984 World Sportscar Championship in this exceptional review. Incredible highlights chart the battles between the mighty Rothmans Porsches, the Martini-backed Lancias and the huge field of privately entered machines from determined challengers like Brun, Joest, Kremer and more.
The 1984 World Championship boasted an impressive line-up of drivers. There were legends of sportscar racing, including Derek Bell, Jacky Ickx, Stefan Bellof, Jochen Mass and Bob Wollek, plus Grand Prix stars past present and future - such as John Watson, Riccardo Patrese and Thierry Boutsen.
The works Porsche 956s dominated, despite strong challenges from the private teams, and the battle for the driver's crown would come down to Bellof and Mass - separated by just three points going into the final round.
Action-packed footage brings you the drama from 10 of the season's high speed showdowns, from the season-opening event at Monza, Italy, to the championship-deciding final round at Sandown, Australia. Only the poorly-attended South African race, which was boycotted by most of the major teams, is not included.
As well as comprehensive coverage of each race, the review features qualifying reports from many rounds and interviews with some of the biggest stars
Plus, there's stunning on-board footage courtesy of Richard Lloyd, Johnny Dumfries, Vern Schuppan and even Sir Jack Brabham!
