Saw this video on our daily visit to www.jalopnik.com today and it struck a cord. At RightDrive, we are all big rally fans and Group B was as good as rally got.
The madness that is Group B was beautifully captured in this video. Grou pB started in the early 1980`s and only lasted a few years. The cars were very powerful and dangerous.
Group B was very relaxed with rules, allowing teams to do just about anything, including homologation numbers for OE`s.
Group B - Crazy Fans
The lure of the Group B monster attracted more and more fans each
stage,eager to get a glimpse of a quattro shooting 1 foot of flame out the
Exhaust or see the cars throwing up
dirt. Some rallys saw hundreds of thousands of fans lining the edge of the
roads forming a human wall.
The rally fans during the Group B ere were the crazyest and biggest ever.
Especially in countries like Portugal and San Remo where over 1 million
people would attend rallys.

Rally Group B - Tribute
All images and music included are not in my own possession.
This is a tribute to the rallying of the middle 80's, when Group B monsters
dominated the championship. There were no serious restrictions for the cars
and no limitations for developing, the tracks were extremely dangerous and
the crowd were as close to the cars as possible. As the result of rapid
evolution the cars became as powerful as F1 cars and it was too much for
human abilities to keep them on the nasty roads on the limit. In 1986,
after several horrible crashes, FIA banned Group B rallying forever.

The End of Group B
This video shows the darkside of Group B rallying and the most important
events that lead to the cancellation of the series from the rally
championship: spectator problems, the Portugal tragedy and the death of the
great Henri Toivonen and his co-driver, Sergio Cresto. Warning, it also
contains the footages of both fatal accidents!

GROUP B High Sound Quality selection...
Dangerous cars, master drivers, brute sound... Selection of best fast
passages and corners of group B vehicles. Last versions of 205T16, Audi
quattro S1 and Lancia Delta S4 could deliver 450+hp in a quite viril way...
Cut from some French dvd production.
The story of Group B Rally cars 1983-1986
How the most insanely powerful rally cars of all time came about and were
eventually banned for being simply too dangerous to driver and spectator.
Epic to watch though. Enjoy!
