We travel to southern Spain, for the Jerez 800 Kilometers, round one of the 1988 FIA World Sports Car Championship. Reigning champions from Silk Cut Jaguar, have a new contender to deal with. The German/Swiss built Sauber C9 Mercedes Benz. Mercedes officially re-enters the world of sports car racing for the first time, in 33 years, after their disastrous crash, at the 1955 24 Hours of Le Mans, which resulted in the worst crash in racing history when one of their cars lost control, and plowed through the crowd, killing 90 spectators.
Porsche are back too, but with prevalent privateers fielding their venerable 962. Click on the link, and enjoy this one.
