    The Group C regulations, in force between 1982 and 1993, led to the production of legendary cars that wrote some of the most glorious pages in the history of the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Sports Car World Endurance Championship.

    Early on, the Porsche 956s dominated despite stiff opposition from the Lancia LC2s, and then in 962 configuration came up against much tougher rivals with the arrival of Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Nissan and Mazda. Alongside the major manufacturers small constructors like Cougar, Dome, Rondeau, Spice and WM could still pull off the odd coup thanks to an intelligent interpretation of the regulations based on strict fuel consumption restrictions. Group C was abandoned in the early 90s after a brief cohabitation with the Sport 3.5s (Peugeot 905, Jaguar XJR-14, Toyota TS010, etc), but that era is still considered as the Golden Age of endurance racing by the majority of specialists of this branch of motor sport.

    For this series entrants are required to choose one of the default car makes and skins available in the car mod and request it here. Within the Group-C car options there are 8 car makes and, within those, 34 skins available so there is plenty of choice for everyone to get something they like. Only 2 cars of each make/skin are allowed in any race and selection is on a first-come, first-served basis.

    This is a League Edition mod so all cars have the same performance.

    Does "This is a League Edition mod so all cars have the same performance." mean they all have the same wt, acceleration, tire wear, etc.?

    They all have the same weight, power, torque, tyres and as far as I know underlying physics, so yes overall competitiveness between all the cars should be equal. The mod was built to be this way.

    Yeh, Yeh we all know that rFactor is an older sim, but for the price of a couple of beers why not grab it on STEAM now!

    If you've never tried it then there is whole world of free mods out there that you have missed and still plenty of life in the ol' Boy which we continue to support here at SRO.

    An alternative download link has been provided on the event page. Some members in North America continue to experience slow downloads that eventually time out. Members in Europe do not appear to have this problem.
