Group C Race of The Day: 1987 Jarama

A thrilling season was to come in 1987 and it all began at the Jarama circuit in Spain for the opening round of the World Sports Car Championship.  The documentary “Supersprint 1” tells the story.

The 1987 World Sports Car Championship starts it’s 12 race series with a 360 kilometer event at the Jarama Circuit in Spain.  With both Porsche and Jaguar so evenly matched, there is little doubt that the 1987 season will be the best year since the Group C regulations began, back in 1982.  We join commentators Paul Fowler on play-by-play, and Mark Cole for pit lane interviews, at Jarama, for all the action.  The last time Jarama saw worldwide motorsports, was the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix in 1981.  Enjoy.
