Très bon état (livre et jaquette).

Sports-car racing enjoyed one of its strongest decades during the Group C era of the 1980s and early 1990s. This period brought new techniques in chassis construction, refined aerodynamics and improved engine management systems. It also boasted a strong mix of competitors that included major manufacturers such as Porsche, Mercedes, Jaguar and Peugeot, as well as several long-running private teams. Together they raced such powerful and exotic cars as the Porsche 956 and 962, the Sauber-Mercedes, the Jaguar XJR series, and the Peugeot 905

This meticulously researched, lavished illustrated volume recalls the sights, sounds, and personalities of this colorful era. Monocoques and Ground Effects offers a year-by-year account of championship races at such classic venues as Le Mans, Daytona, Monza and the Nürburgring. It features all the well-known Group C cars and drivers, as well many less-celebrated but important participants.

In the fourth and final volume of his photographic history of championship sports-car racing, renowned motorsports historian János Wimpffen uses hundreds of rare photographs to recreate the ambience and excitement of the Group C era. These images were personally selected by Wimpffen, who not only explains their significance to a particular race or season, but within the broader context of the sport’s development and history.
