A decade, brimmed with innovation. Speed, more than ever before. Extreme fashion statements, new wave music, the first launch of the Space Shuttle and the continuing allure of Concord.
A peak in arcade gaming, and the introduction of the GameBoy. We had fire-breathing Group B rally cars and turbo-powered rocketships dominating Formula 1.

I am talking about the 1980s… I am talking, about Group C. Join us on a journey through the ’80s and ’90s at Circuit De La Sarthe.
Through the magic era of Group C racing and the initial domination of one German manufacturer, all the way through the late 90s and the short but sweet emergence of GT1.
