2019 Series – BRM Group C 1/24

Share this page with:

Series Manager: Stephen / Shawn.
This series will be raced in the second half of 2019 (H2).

The FIA’s Group C formula was designed primarily for the World Endurance Championship which included the 24 Hours of Le Mans. However, several smaller series also adapted the Group C regulations. The Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft allowed Group C cars to compete alongside various other types of cars from the 1982 season until 1985, when the series was reformed as the Supercup. Under the new Supercup series, only Group C cars would be allowed to compete. This series lasted until 1989.
