Product description

Four years of excellent, hard-driving, door-bashing action from the European Touring Car Championship at a great price.

In its heyday the ETCC saw brilliant drivers such as Johnny Cecotto, Roberto Ravaglia, Steve Soper and Gerhard Berger compete in ‘souped-up’ versions of ordinary saloon cars such as the Ford Sierra, BMW 3- and 6-Series and Rover’s Vitesse. It makes for compelling viewing as the field jockey for positions in often very closely matched cars on some of the most famous circuits Europe has to offer. Expect lots of slides, spins and ‘friendly’ nudging!

1984 saw Tom Walkinshaw and the Jaguar XJ-S go on the offensive, taking the fight to Volvo, BMW and Alfa in their own backyards and coming away with the driver’s title.

1985 was the year of the Volvo turbo – driven by Brancatelli and Lindström to the championship win, although Alfa retained their stranglehold on the constructor’s title. Bonus: Profile of ’85 Rover Team.

1986 saw a fiesta Bumper-to-bumper racing, a host of driving stars in legendary cars and a down-to-the-wire title battle – surely one of the most memorable seasons of tin top racing ever?

1988 the final year of the old ETCC. What a corker it turned out to be. The racing was simply sensational and the title chases went right down to the wire. What a way to go out!
