"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 Nurburgring. 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 Janos 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."
