Group C was one of the greatest eras of endurance racing. However, it is virtually impossible for those Group C cars to race again in Le Mans or WEC due to changes in regulations. Furthermore, owners of those iconic racers are often quite shy to use them on the track, so most of these monsters usually spend rest of their lives in a climate-controlled garage. However, there is no need to be discouraged, as we have the Le Mans Classic!

Le Mans Classic is a race where historic Le Mans racers gather and race again head to head against each other. There are a total of 7 categories, divided according to the timeline. One of them is the Group C category, where owners bring out their monsters on the La Sarthe. So, if you are enjoying a lazy weekend, why don’t you spice it up with a bit of Group C noise?

  • I saw a race of group c monsters at the Circuit Paul Ricard in the south of France, the sound was eargasmic, the peugeot 905 is with the matra simca ms670c and the detomaso pantera gt5 touring car, the best sounding car ever. There were jaguar (2 xjr9 and a xjr12), nissan, sauber, lola t92/10 (with a judd v10), a chevrolet and many other group c race car, it was with the ''classic lemans racing series 1 & 2'' (in the series 1 there were 2 917k, a 917c, Ford gt mk 1, 2 and 4, detomaso pantera and other beautiful beast) (and in the series 2 there were the can am race cars, the matra simca ms670, some m1 procar, 935k3, 911 930 turbo race car, lotus esprit gt1 and gt2 and other racing beasts) the most beautiful races I ever saw, it was the paradise on earth (with the access to the paddock to see all of the classic cars and the guys from jaguar and Peugeot let us come in the stand to see their group c cars). If you have the chance to go to a classic race car event like the 10000 tours du Paul Ricard, go to it, it'll be without doubt the best car related thing you'll ever do
