Reminisce About 1970 Group 5 Sports Car Racing with The Breakfast Club

Submitted by on December 1, 2017

Group 5 Sports car

This fun little edit takes a look back at the iconic Group 5 sports car racers of 1970, recounting the stories of some truly magnificent machines.

The film is beautifully shot, if pushed a little too far in the retro post processing of the video and audio. It is, sadly, one I won’t tell you to turn up, although there’s a good bit when they fire up and head out for a demo run later in the piece.

It features a Ferrari 512S Coda Lunga, Porsche 917K, McLaren M6B/GT and Lola T70, which gathered together at the 74th Goodwood Members Meeting in early 2016. There’s some great period footage as well as stories and thoughts from the owner/drivers of each car. Hit play, don’t take it too seriously, and enjoy.
