Group B rally cars

Background

FIA (International Automobile Federation) introduced Group B in 1982 as the most exotic category in motor rallying. The regulations for Group B required the manfacturers to build only 200 road cars, very much lower than Group A's 5000 cars. Besides, more modifications were allowed for the race version. Therefore car makers could put as much state-of-the-art technology as possible into their racing cars.
This created a golden era in motor rallying history - Audi, Lancia, Peugoet, Ford, Citroen and Austin Rover created many super rally cars to compete in World Rally Championship, all with at least 400 horsepower, lightweight Kevlar body and most of them were mid-engined and 4-wheel drive also. Recalling that period, motor rally enthusiasts always regard that as the best moment of their life. WRC had never been as exciting as that period.

What a pity the Group B ended in misery. In 1986 season, series of accidents involving spectators as well as led to the death of Lancia's top driver Henri Toivonen and navigator Sergio Cresto happened. Group B was accused of being too powerful and too light to be controllable. As a result, FIA axed it after that season.

WRC (1983-86)

The earliest Group B WRC was dominated by Lancia 037 (1983 winner) and Audi Quattro Sport (1984 winner), both of them were developed based on the existing road cars, although the Audi received heavy modifications. But the real competition started in late 1984, when Peugeot entered the purposely built 205 Turbo 16, a mid-engined, 4-wheel drive nimble car. It won the title easily from Audi's hands in the next season. Ford entered RS200 in 1985, with ambitious plan but so-so result. Lancia Delta S4 suddenly stormed the field as it won its debut race in 1986, and still dominating the driver's championship as well as manufacturer championship until the moment that its leading driver Toivenen died in a crash. So Peugeot seized the chance and retained its title in the final season of Group B.
The Road Cars

As usual, AutoZine does not involve motor racing or racing cars. Here we are going to concentrate on the 200 road cars. Please bear in mind that their objective was just to satisfy the requirement from FIA, so they might not be very well-developed. Don't compare them with other sports car.

Audi Quattro Sport
Ford RS200
Lancia 037
Lancia Delta S4
Peugeot 205 T16
Rover Metro 6R4
Renault R5 Turbo

There are still some Quattro's around... Go check youtube, guys still bring them out to play at those speed festivals and what what, my dad still has some group B footage, recently took it from VHS to digital so I'm def. copying that sh!t next time I'm there.

Apparently I religiously (and without a choice) watched Super Van rally the Quattro when I was a baby... Can't remember it though FML!!! I do have a pretty neat photo of me standing and taking a p!ss right next to Serge Damseaux's 4wd 2 liter turbo Conquest.. Also have a photo off me and Hannes Grobler with that bad ass Nissan that he drove back then... Pitty I cant remember anything though, apparently me and dad slept in the car and followed the rallies from the first stage till the last!

Quality father and son time FTW!
