Group C Race of the Day: 1986 Jerez 360 Kilometers

Silk Cut Jaguar was set to win in Spain, with virtually no competition.  There was no works Porsche, Lancia, or the Rothmans-Joest Porsche to worry about.  What would happen to Derek Warwick and Jan Lammers?  Stay tuned, to find out.

The new circuit of Jerez in southern Spain was to be host to the sixth round of the World Sports Car Championship series.  In temperatures above 40 degrees Centigrade, the racing was to be close – and perhaps just that little bit too close.  Cinch those belts down tight, one more time, as we join Paul Fowler in the commentary box, in the land of sherry and the Moors, the Muslim inhabitants of the Maghreb, the Iberian peninsula, Sicily, and Malta during the Middle Ages.

The World Sports Car Championship races in Iberia, in the sherry producing hills of Andalusia, for the first time, ever.  Paul Fowler calls the racing action.
