It's truly crazy how much the top class regressed in that mid-90s spell. Some terrific racing, some terrific cars and many of you who are old enough to remember it I'm sure have cherished memories - but it's incredible how slow and primitive those prototypes were, with many of them barely faster than much heavier road-based vehicles.

There wasn't really a lot of technology to separate the TWR Porsche with the 936 from two decades before.

TK, who recorded his first win in the car, remarked on how much changed in his career - from the H-pattern, flat-bottomed, heavily neutered Group C car in his first win to the space-ship diesel machine of his last one.
