1983 – The works Rothmans Porsche team dominated the season
with its mighty 956, despite challenges from the privateer Porsches of Joest,
J David and Kremer, and the Martini Lancia team. Relive the full story of the
down-to-the-wire title battle between Ickx and Bell,

1984 – The works Porsche 956 was once again the class of the
field, and while Ickx and Bell
showed their usual style, it was Bellof and Jochen Mass who would battle to the
end for the championship, entering the final round split by just three points!
1985 – The new Porsche 962C added to a fascinating season of
racing, however this year will always be remembered for the tragic accidents
which claimed the lives of reigning champion Stefan Bellof and rising star
Manfred Winkelhock, and the pitlane fiascos which saw the sport change forever.
1986 – A year packed with incredible racing and
unforgettable highs – including Jaguar’s home win – but also a season dogged by
controversy right down to the very last chequered flag. It looked like the
works Porsche domination may be broken, but there would be a sting in the tail.
1987 – After the pain of 1986, Jaguar was out for victory,
and the Tom Walkinshaw-prepared V12 XJR-8 machines humiliated the Porsches all
season. Dominating all but two races of the season, the British marque was back
on top of the world, and back in style.
1988 – With Porsche pride being carried by the privateer
teams, it was left to Jaguar and the awesomely powerful, turbo-charged Sauber
Mercedes to battle for the title. Championship rivals Brundle and Jean-Louis
Schlesser battled for honours all seasons in an enthralling year.
1989 – The Sauber Mercedes team put the ‘silver arrows’ back
on top of the world with its awesome C9, despite some heroic efforts from
and Nissan. It was a thrilling championship battle between Sauber stars Schlesser
and Mauro Baldi, with the title-deciding final round marred by a massive smash.
