How Group C is making a comeback
“My first experience of Group C racing was sitting in the grandstand at Brands Hatch in the pouring rain in 1982, watching Jacky Ickx winning the World Championship in a Porsche 956,” says Henry Pearman, one of the foremost enthusiasts and collectors of Group C cars. “Not long afterwards, I was taken around Spa as a passenger, strapped in by a standard road-car seatbelt. I remember thinking two things: firstly, if we crashed, then at least I died in the ultimate way. Secondly, I promised myself I’d do whatever it takes to one day own one of these cars.”
