Driven; Sauber-Mercedes C9 Group C Legend

The Sauber-Mercedes C9 is an all time Le Mans great. Watch as we drive it at a wet and windy Donnington circuit.

Driven; Sauber-Mercedes C9 Group C Legend

The Group C era of the late 1980s and early 1990s is one of sportscar racing’s most celebrated. ‘Silk Cut’ Jaguars versus ‘Silver Arrow’ Mercedes and ‘Rothmans’ Porsches to name but a few...

Spectacular, closed-roof prototypes racing wheel-to-wheel at speeds of up to 250mph - that’s 400kph - along the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans.

These are the cars that our man, Sam Hancock, fell in love with as a child and these are the cars that render, even the most hardened motor sport fans, misty-eyed.

Join Sam on a wet and windy day as he tests one of the all time greats: the 1987 Sauber-Mercedes C9.
