Changes to regulations for sports car racing in the late 1970s paved the way for a golden era of endurance racing in the 80s, with the likes of Porsche, Lancia, Jaguar and Mercedes all vying for the World Sportscar Championship. The Silverstone 6-Hour and 1000km races became a cornerstone of this championship and the event was often used by the teams as a warm-up to the all important Le Mans 24-Hour race, which followed it on the calendar. This book charts the progress of the races, year-by-year from 1976, through the era of the Group C cars, up to the end of the eighties, with previously unpublished accounts and photographs of each event
Chas Parker has written a number of books about motorsport, including Haynes Manuals for the D-type Jaguar and Bugatti Type 35 and others. He was short-listed, together with co-author Philip Porter, for the 2017 RAC Motoring Book of the Year Award for his book on the 1953 Le Mans-winning C-type Jaguar.
