Too Fast to Race & Still to Fast to Race (2 DVD Disc Set) - Description

"This two-disc combo of Group B fever brings two and a half hours of 1980s WRC to your screen" Autosport

This fantastic value 2-disc set brings together two awesome films celebrating the monsters of rallying's Group B era

The 'Group B' International Motorsports Category was conceived in the late 1970s as a return to the 'good old days' when amateur and factory teams alike could run the same production-based cars in either sports car racing or championship rally events.

By the early 1980s the class had become the 'Godzilla' of the rally scene and what resulted were 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 or since.

In 1986 the door was slammed shut on the F1 cars of mountain and forest roads. 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".

The legacy of Group B, however, is a whole range of spectacular cars that continue to thrill enthusiasts. Features the Ford RS200, Lancia 037 Rally, Lancia S4, MG Metro 6R4, Peugeot 205/T16, Audi Quattro, Renault 5 Turbo, Opel, Citroen also the amazing Ferrari 288GTO Evoluzione, Jaguar XJ220 supercar and Porsche 959 - the car that came closest of all to fulfilling the Group B ethos. It won both the Paris-Dakar and its class in the Le Mans 24 Hour Race!

Too Fast To Race features awesome action footage and stunning close ups of these magnificent machines. There's more from the full story behind the awesome Group B Rally cars, featuring mind-blowing contemporary and archive racing footage of these fire-breathing rocket ships at blistering speeds!

In Still Too Fast To Race iconic machines, including the Audi Quattro, Lancia Delta S4, Ford RS200, Peugeot 205 T16, Lancia O37 and MG Metro 6R4, are pushed to the limit by World Rally Champion Stig Blomqvist.

You may never witness them on the World Rally stage again, but the entertainment provided by these supercharged monsters remains, to delight fans old and new.

Here is another priceless opportunity to see them restored to their former breath-taking glory! A must for all rally and fast car enthusiasts!
