Since the beginning of the season, Peter Auto has Group C races at all his events. Therefore this was probably the grid the complete race world was most waiting for. It is always epic to see this true race monsters on any race track. Let alone on the legendary Circuit de La Sarthe. This is the race track where the Group C has raced some of the most iconic races in history.
Before the races, no less then 48 cars were promised on the grid. However, today there seemed to be less showing up. Nevertheless, it is impressive to see 35 of these cars leave the pitlane after the safety car for the warm-up lap. Some minutes later the air is filled with the noise of roaring engines. It feels as if an earthquake is happening when the complete grid comes full speed towards you. A deafening sound, combined with the fuel fumes and the odor of the burning rubber makes the experience complete. The race is on.. and that makes the crowd next to the track happy… real happy
