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.
One of the great 'Group B' monsters of the era was the MG Metro 6R4. Introduced into the category in 1984, it was powered by a normally aspirated and mid-mounted 3-litre V6 engine, which made a fantastic howl at full tilt through the stages and the car really epitomised the essence of Group B with it's lairy bodywork and wide arches. This t-shirt is our tribute one of the great machines of the Group B rally era.
