Silverstone Circuit is a motor racing circuit in England, near the Northamptonshire villages of Silverstone and Whittlebury. It is the current home of the British Grand Prix. The second round of the World Endurance Championship series for manufacturers and drivers takes place here. The Silverstone Grand Prix circuit is 2.93 miles. Watch as the group C cars take on the Lancia group cars.
For 1982, endurance sport car racing entered a rejuvenated phase with the coming of Group C; the BRDC and l'Automobile Club de l'Ouest instituted a joint Silverstone and Le Mans Challenge Trophy. The trophy eventually went to Jacky Ickx and Derek Bell in a Porsche 956, but at Silverstone they could not make maximum use of the fuel allowance and victory went to the Lancia LC1 of Riccardo Patrese and Michele Alboreto. The winning car completed the 240 laps at a speed of 128.5 mph, with the second-place car three laps adrift, that of Ickx and Bell. The final podium place went to the Joest Racing Porsche 936C Turbo of Bob Wollek and Jean-Michel Martin and Philippe Martin.
