Legendary Group C racers to star at Goodwood

| 20 Nov 2014

The 73rd Goodwood Members' Meeting will be brought to life on 21-22 March by the screaming engines one of sports car racing's most evocative eras. A number of Group C racers are expected to take to the circuit during the exclusive meeting, with 15 cars committed at this early stage.

Jaguar XJR-12

Among the marques to be represented is Jaguar, with the XJR-9, XJR-11 and XJR-12 cars already confirmed. The cars are set to be driven on demonstration laps of the circuit by Martin Brundle, Derek Warwick and Jan Lammers. 

Lancia LC2

A pair of Martini-liveried Lancia LC2s, including Bob Wollek's 1984 Le Mans pole-taker, are also expected to attend, along with the ex-Steve O'Rourke EMKA Aston Martin that briefly led at La Sarthe in 1985 at the hands of Tiff Needell. 

Toyota TS010

A Toyota TS010 – examples of which broke the lap record at Le Mans in 1992 and '93 – will get an airing, as will a brace of Mercedes-Benz C11s. 

Porsche 962

Of course, no Group C demonstration would be complete without a handful of Stuttgart's finest exports. With seven Le Mans victories between them (including the Dauer 962 in 1994), the Porsche 956 and 962 will be a surefire hit with the crowd. 

Nissan R90CK

Mark Blundell's Nissan R90CK and a number of C1 designs will also appear. 

Tickets are available to members of the Goodwood Road Racing Club and other Goodwood Clubs, while a limited number of tickets will also be made available to non-members.
