Classic Endurance Racing

Classic Endurance Racing 1 echoes one of the most mythical periods in the history of the World Endurance Championship.

 

The racing seasons culminating in the 24 Hours of Le Mans saw the legendary Ford GT40s take on the Ferrari 330 P4, then the Porsche 917s against the Ferrari 512. This was the great era of prototype racing from 1966 to 1971, a category that covered more than half of the starting grids. In GT, we find the battles between the Porsche 911 RSR and the various Ferrari Daytona Gr. IV and Chevrolet Corvette C3 at the turn of the 70s.

The Classic Endurance Racing 2 cars are on average ten years younger than in Classic Endurance Racing 1. We are talking about the mid 1970s to early 1980s. This period is characterised by GTs with ever increasing power. Think of the Porsche 935, the BMW M1, the Ferrari BB512 LM. But also the Lancia Beta Montecarlo and the Ford Capri Zakspeed Turbo can be found in this series. This also marks the arrival of a new prototype generation made of Inalteras, Rondeaus, WMs or Lolas, announcing the soon arrival of Group C cars.
