Welcome to Historic Group C

Since October 1982 at the rain-soaked Brands Hatch 1,000 kms, we’ve been obsessed with Group C.

From the mid-90’s we have rebuilt, restored, raced and shown them by invitation at the world’s best events, winning races and the 2008 historic championship, as well as awards at Goodwood, Amelia Island and Rennsport. We occasionally find them new homes too.

Over 30 years in the making, with unique access to Porsche's archives, the period teams and drivers

This award winning three volume book follows the incredible full story of the Porsche 962 in unseen and unrepeatable detail.

Having now fully restored all the cars in the collection to their authentic original condition, we can now offer unique access to these parts as both usable spares or as authentic period memorabilia, much of it certainly being ‘works of art’.
