Classic Group C Sportscars are about as cool as racing cars can and ever will ever be. What could be better than a wild variety of engines, aero designs and liveries racing across the most iconic tracks in the world for hours upon hours on end, driven to the absolute limit by endurance heroes?

Let the memories flood back as you watch these Group C legends tear around Zandvoort as part of the 2014 Historic Grand Prix of Zandvoort. Just listen to those engines! It’s no surprise Group C Sportscars¬† captured the hearts of racing fans worldwide.

1991 Cosworth DFR V8 powered Cheetah G606 aka ROC 002 , as driven by Pascal Fabre and Bernard Thuner in the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Gebhardt C91 as raced in 1992 at Monza and Silverstone as part of the FIA World Sportscar Championship. Originally Audi 2.L powered, we believe to be now a Cosworth 3.5 (listen to it!)

Sauber Mercedes-Benz C11 Group C Prototype, the 950hp successor to the Sauber C9. This was the first time such a car was presented as a Mercedes Benz, rather than Sauber. This car was at one stage owned by Michael Schumacher.

Thank you.
