Group C Cars To Race Again At Le Mans 2010 - Web Exclusive

Nov 24, 2009

The support race at next year’s Le Mans 24 Hour race (June 12-13, 2010) will feature cars from the legendary Group C era. Spectators will again witness icons as the Silk Cut Jaguars, Sauber Mercedes and Porsche 962s running flat-out in competition on the famous 8.5-mile Le Mans circuit shortly before the start of the main 24 Hours.

The race has been organized by Motor Racing Legends, in partnership with Group C/GTP Racing. “We work with the ACO each year to pick a different period of Le Mans history for the support race,” said Duncan Wiltshire of Motor Racing Legends, “On the two previous occasions when we’ve run Group C cars, there has been an overwhelming reaction from Le Mans fans. It was a golden era for the sport and still creates massive emotion for the crowds. We’re often told by fans that the historic support race was a highlight of the weekend.”

Bob Berridge of Group C/GTP Racing added, “There has already been a surge in interest from competitors for this event, so we’re expecting cars from Porsche, Jaguar, Mazda, Spice and Mercedes, as well as Aston Martin, Nissan, Argo and Tiga.” The 45-minute Group C/GTP support race at the 2010 Le Mans 24 Hours will be on the morning of Saturday 12th June, a few hours before the start of the modern endurance race.
