Product description

Too Fast to Race

The ‘Group B’ motorsport category was conceived as a return to the ‘good old days’ when amateur and factory teams alike could run the same production-based cars.

The law of unintended consequences came to the fore at this point: manufacturers realising they could game the system by creating ‘homologation specials’.

By the early eighties the class had resulted in some of the most awesome cars ever seen on the rally stages of the world - 600 horsepower, 4WD, turbocharged monsters that could cover forest, tarmac or gravel stages faster than anything ever seen before.

In 1986 the door was slammed shut on these rocketships: faster and faster cars combined with wilder and crazier crowds meant that within the confines of rally car competition the group B rocket ships were just “too fast to race”.

Watch in awe as we delve into the automotive exotica created for the brief, golden moment of Group B’s flourishing: Lancia’s 037 and Delta, Ford’s RS200, Audi Quattro, Peugeot 205T16, Renault 5 Turbo and the epic Porsche 959. 

Special feature: Rallye Alpin-Behra 1984 featuring BMW’s M1 rally car.
