Monocoques & Ground Effects
World Championship Sports Car Racing in Photographs, 1982-1992
The fourth volume of Wimpffen’s photographic history of world sports cars charts the rise of Group C and its glory years, the start of Group C Junior and Group C2, and the split that led to the American IMSA arm. The Group C years are run through chronologically. Each chapter starts with a summary of the year and includes “never before published” images.
Sadly for a photograph-led book, the design and some images are a let-down. With many photos appearing dark and dreary, and some even out of focus, this nigh-on £100 book falls short of doing the legendary Group C era justice. The text does offer comprehensive coverage of the series, but the result is less impressive than Wimpffen’s three previous volumes. EF
