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

factory team in 1990.
This book features 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.
