Product description

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

Sauber Mercedes was the team to beat in the 1989 World Sportscar Championship, the mighty Silver Arrows overshadowing rivals Jaguar, Porsche, Nissan and Toyota throughout the battle for the prototype title. This action-packed review features dramatic highlights and interviews with the stars bringing you the full story of the season.

Exceptional action footage, including some in-car sequences, from all eight rounds charts the incredible performance of the unstoppable Sauber Mercedes C9 from the opening race in Japan to the title-deciding final round in Mexico. Experience the speed, drama, controversy and nail-biting finale from one of the most memorable seasons of racing.

The Mercedes assault was led by Jean-Louis Schlesser, Jochen Mass, Mauro Baldi and Kenny Acheson, while driving greats including Jan Lammers, Bob Wollek, Julian Bailey, Mark Blundell were also out for victory during the 1989 season.

The arrival of Jaguar's new turbo-charged XJR-11, a strong field of privately-entered Porsches and Japanese competition from Toyota and Nissan posed occasional challenges to Mercedes' dominance, but the silver cars were almost in a class of their own. While the destination of the team title was a foregone conclusion from the opening round, the battle for the driver's crown remained an intense fight between Schlesser and Baldi right down to the very last race - where a massive collision decided the outcome. All eyes were on Mercedes, but this review also highlights the Joest team's heroics, the awesome Spice performance at Donington and the flashes of brilliance from Jaguar's drivers.

This comprehensive review is an essential record of an important year for sportscar racing, as well as an action-packed journey through an awesome season of racing.

"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
