Happy birthday Donington Park, 80 years old today
Stefan Bellof (November 20th, 1957) and his Porsche 956. He is the holder of the fastest lap at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, both unofficial and official (6:11.13’ and 6:25.91’, respectively).
And that car, right there, is the pinnacle of the Group C cars.
Sadly, his life was ended prematurely.. (killed in an accident with Jacky Ickx at Spa 1000km)
I hate that he is left out of the 1984 Monaco story every time it’s told.
