Sauber-Mercedes: The Group C Racecars 1985-1991 is an in-depth study of the Sauber-Mercedes racecars that dominated the Group C racing scene during the late 1980s and early 1990s. When Peter Sauber started using Mercedes V8 engines in his Group C sports cars in 1985 the result was World Championship wins in 1989 and 1990. Utterly dominant, the three-pointed star of Mercedes beat the TWR Jaguars and Nissans and introduced M. Schumacher into the factory team in 1990. This book contains interviews with many of the personalities who raced with the Sauber-Mercedes team, including Jochen Mass, Mauro Baldi, Kenny Acheson, David Price, Bobby Bell and Leo Ress. A host of magnificent colour photographs backs up the history and development of the cars. Also included is a chassis-by-chassis history of each individual car. The story of the Sauber-Mercedes racecars that dominated the Group C racing scene during the late 1980s and early 1990s, covering their design and development. These cars beat the TWR Jaguars and the Porsche 962 in World Championship Group C Racing, and marked Mercedes return to World Class International competition, which they had left in 1955.

Im not aware of any other books on the market that are solely about these cars. Great colour photos, interviews with racing personalities of the day, and the history of all the individual cars.
