SA STANNIC GROUP N RACING KYALAMI 1991

South African Stannic Group N race at Kyalami for Class A and B production cars. This race took place near the end of the initial manufacturer-backed era and included the quickest ever South Africa-only production Opel Kadetts and 2.7 litre BMW 325iS Evo cars. Tony Viana lead the BMW attack in the 2.7 litre BMW 325iS Evolution II, while Mike Briggs headed up the Opel attack in the 2 litre Opel Kadett 16V Superboss. As usual the battle between them saw each driver extracting the absolute maximum from themselves and their cars.

British journalist and YouTube sensation Chris Harris drive and discuss the legendary locally-developed Opel Kadettt 2,0 GSI 16V S, aka "The Superboss" and its rival, BMW's 325iS, both of which captured the imaginations of aficionados and fans of Group N circuit racing in the early Nineties. They drive the racing versions of both cars and the video includes NEVER SEEN BEFORE AMATEUR FOOTAGE of a pitlane disagreement between BMW and Opel protagonists, the late Tony Viana and Mike Briggs, from the period.

Group N Production Car Crash 1990
Group N Production car racing crashes for you from the 1990 season, full season of the BARC Firestone series, and a few clips from two rounds of the Esso series, which was BRDC ? Watching the Firestone series, you end up wondering how Andy Middlehurst managed to keep a race license for a full season, so much blatant "troll" driving to push other cars off that dare to be ahead of him. The Esso clips are not from TV but from commercial compilation videos, I put them here to give their proper context, and show the various views from different tapes as none of the commercial tapes that feature these clips did a proper job. More seasons to come.
