Group C Race of The Day: 1988 World Sports Car Championship: Nurburgring 1,000 Kilometers

We stay in the 1988 Group C/World Sports Car Championship season, for the race at the Nurburgring in the Eiffel Mountains of Germany.

The battle for the FIA World Sports Car Championship between Jaguar, Mercedes, and Porsche continued in round eight of the world series.  But this was to be a race full of controversy due to the organizers insistence that the event be run in two heats of 500 kilometers.  The first to be run on Saturday evening and race on into the night, whilst the second heat was held at the more conventional time of Sunday afternoon.  However, just to make things even more difficult, it was both rainy and misty on both days.  Don’t let anyone tell you all racing is fun.

This was going to be a bear for all involved.  Anyhow, let’s get to the racing, now, as we join commentator Richard Hudson-Evans for the call.
