Publisher's Notes Sports car racing enjoyed one of it’s strongest decades during the Group C era of the 1980’s and early 1990’s, driven by innovations in aerodynamics and chassis design and support from the major manufacturers such as Porsche, Mercedes and Jaguar. That era roars back to life in Janos Wimpffen’s Monocoques and Ground Effects. In the fourth and final volume of his photographic history of championship sports-car racing, renowned motorsport historian Wimpffen uses hundreds of rare photographs to recreate the ambience and excitement of the Group C era. Monocoques and Ground Effects offers a year-by-year account of championship races at such classic venues as Le Mans, Daytona, Monza and the Nurburging. It features all the well-known Group C cars and drivers, as well as many less-celebrated but important participants. Due to the size and weight of this book, delivery in Australia via AAE will be $15.95.
