SAUBER-MERCEDES The Group C Racecars 1985-1991
€34,95  
An in-depth study of the Sauber-Mercedes racecars that dominated the Group C racing scene during the late 1980s and early 1990s.
When Peter Sauber started using Mercedes V8 engines in his Group C sports cars in 1985 the result was World Championship wins in 1989 and 1990. Utterly dominant, the three-pointed star of Mercedes beat the TWR Jaguars and Nissans, and introduced a certain M. Schumacher into the factory team in 1990.
This book features interviews with many of the personalities who raced with the Sauber-Mercedes team, including Jochen Mass, Mauro Baldi, Kenny Acheson, David Price, Bobby Bell and Leo Ress. A host of magnificent colour photographs backs up the history and development of the cars. Also included is a chassis-by-chassis history of each individual car.

Additional Information
Period Covered: 1984-1991
Models Covered: Sauber Mercedes C8, C9, C11, C291

-- These cars beat the TWR Jaguars and the Porsche 962 in World Championship Group C Racing, and marked Mercedes’ return to World Class International competition, which they had left in 1955.
Great colour photos, interviews with racing personalities of the day, and the history of all the individual cars.

Author(s)John STARKEY
About the author(s)John Starkey began life in Birmingham, England. After school, with dreams of “rock stardom” in mind, he played guitar in several bands, along the way opening for the Beatles in 1963, before becoming Jasper Carrott’s manager.
His father’s love of fast cars had passed down to him and, starting with a Jaguar XK120, bought in 1966 for £120, he started discovering this heady world. After a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta, life was never quite the same again. The racing bug bit hard when he first drove a Porsche RSR. This was followed by “a beast” of a 935, then a Lola T70 Mk 3b coupé, and a March 84G. These he raced across Europe and America.
In 1997, John moved to America, where he began writing, naturally, about racing cars … After twenty books, John thinks he has now run out of subjects to cover, although he has recently begun a novel about the world of dealing in old cars. He also investigates the individual histories of old racing cars for clients, and together with Su, his wife, enjoys walking his dog Boomer.
