"...a real treat for Group C fans"Autosport

The 1985 World Sportscar Championship was a season of tragedy, triumph and controversy. This exceptional review features incredible highlights charting a historic year for motorsport, as pitlane fiascos and the tragic loss of two racing stars prompted widespread changes for the sport.

This review is packed with action and incident from all 10 rounds of the championship chase, with interviews, in-car footage and informed commentary bringing you the full story of an important season. From the opening race at Mugello to the closing round in Malaysia - visiting Le Mans, Monza, Spa and Silverstone along the way - this is a comprehensive look back at 1985.

The arrival of a new Porsche, the 962C, raised fresh hopes privateer teams like Joest, Kremer and Brun could challenge the works Rothmans Porsche outfit, while improved reliability could make the powerful Lancia a genuine contender. With an exceptional driver line-up, featuring Derek Bell, Jacky Ickx, Stefan Bellof, Jochen Mass, Hans Stuck, Riccardo Patrese and many more, the scene was set for a fascinating sportscar season.

Although the works Porsche machines dominated again, the racing captured on this review makes for compelling viewing. Sadly, the 1985 was overshadowed by the horrific accidents which claimed the lives of Manfred Winkelhock and reigning champion Bellof

The tragic loss of these two young racers, coupled with the hectic scenes as the Hockenheim round is hit by three pit fires, led to major changes for the, making 1985 an historically important year.


"Relive the greatest era of world championship sportscar racing - the 1980s Group C formula - with these individual season-highlights DVDs.

Great racing between factory and privateer Porshe teams, with the occasional interference from Lancia, hallmarked the series' early years, before Jaguar and Sauber-Mercedes took over as the 200mph-plus prototypes of choice.

Ranging from an hour and a half to two hours, these well-edited reviews coverall the on-and off-track action between 1983 and 1989. And the on-board footage and interviews with the stars of the day make each production a real treat for Group C fans"Autosport
