Group C Race of The Day: 1986 World Sports Car, Spa Francorchamps

The 1986 Spa 1,000 Kilometers on the fast, spectacular circuit, of Spa Francorchamps, was the eighth round of the driver’s championship, and round four of the battle for the World Sports Car Championship team’s cup.  With all three major brands represented, Porsche, Jaguar, and Mercedes, we know this one is going to be close, but by the time you see this race, spoiler alert, your jaw may be on the floor.  Tune in and find out what I mean, right now.  To win this race, you have to have “The Racer’s Edge”, which is the title of this documentary from the Duke Video/Videovision Broadcast International archives.  We join commentator, Paul Fowler, and pit reporter, Mark Cole, for all the action.
