Group C Race of The Day: 1985 Spa Francorchamps 1,000 Kilometers

We return to the majestic Spa Francorchamps circuit, for the 1985 Spa 1,000 Kilometers, an event that would prove both historic, and tragic.  World Champion driver, Stefan Bellof, is killed, during this event, in a fatal accident.  So, be warned.  This race, much like the one that highlighted Manfred Winkelhock’s ultimately fatal accident at Mosport, may be hard to watch if you are of nervous disposition, get emotionally distressed by racing accidents, or, are squeamish.  It’s a historic race, but one of both triumph, and tragedy, as we join Brian Kreisky, for the race call.
