Group C Race of the Day: Mosport 1,000 Kilometers, 1985

The only North American race of the World Sports Car Championship for 1985, sees the triumphant return of Jaguar to international sports car racing, (for the first time in 25 years), and tragedy, as the great driver, Manfred Winkelhock, suffers an accident later on in this event, and would pass away from his injuries suffered in the accident, days later.  Rest In Peace, Manfred Winkelhock.  We dedicate this post, to his memory.

We join race commentator Brian Kreisky for the sixth event of World Sports Car Championship season.
