Group CN is a category of motorsport, introduced by the FIA in the early nineties for sports car racing. Group CN cars are mainly seen in hillclimbing championships or sports racing series. Group CM is a non-FIA class which is closely related to Group CN.
Major racing series
Group CN rules are applied to a variety of championships. Many championships alter the rules in their own way like the Radical European Masters and V de V championships.
