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.

Rally Finland the 1000 Lakes Rally Jyväskylän Suurajot Jyväskylä Grand
For the 1980 season, the 1000 Lakes Rally lost its status as a world
championship event for manufacturers, running for the first and last time
only as a world drivers' championship event. The rally saw the return of
the short Harju asphalt stage held in the center of Jyväskylä. Although
the rally became the first in the world to issue action and safety
instructions in 1980, several serious accidents marred the event in the
early 1980s. At the 1981 rally, Austrian driver Franz Wittmann lost control
of his Audi Quattro after the finish line of the fourth stage and crashed
into five end-of-stage officials. Raul Falin, the chairman of
AKK-Motorsport, died of his injuries soon after reaching the hospital. In
1983, Pekka Mällinen slid off the road on a fast curve, rolled twice and
crashed into a thick pine tree. The accident killed his co-driver Reijo
Nygren. At the 1984 rally, British driver Julian Roderick lost control of
his car on a popular spectator area in the Humalamäki jumpers. He rolled
his car several times and hit a wall of people who had been spectating in a
forbidden area. Along with Roderick and his co-driver, nine spectators
suffered non-critical injuries.
The Audi Quattro S1 used by Hannu Mikkola during tests for the 1985 rally
Although the 1000 Lakes continued to be dominated by Nordic drivers, David
Richards became the third British co-driver to celebrate the win in 1981.
In 1982, the pre-rally scrutineering was moved to the newly built
Jyväskylän jäähalli (Jyväskylä Ice Hall). All over 150 contestants
passed the inspection. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden arrived to follow the
event and a record 450 reporters were present. Audi took a one-two with its
factory drivers Hannu Mikkola and Stig Blomqvist. The 1983 rally featured a
field of 180 cars, over a hundred of which failed to make it to the finish.
Mikkola edged out Blomqvist to extend the event record to a still-standing
seven wins. Mikkola's time on the 24.5-kilometre Ouninpohja stage was
11:56; 52 seconds faster than his
time just four years ago. In 1984, over half a million spectators were
expected and about 5,000 marshals were appointed. Vatanen won the event and
Peugeot continued their success in the last two Group B years, as Timo
Salonen drove to victory in 1985 and 1986.
The 1985 event marked the first time the drivers' world championship had
been decided in Finland; Salonen captured the title with three rallies to
go.In 1986, the route was modified to bring the average speeds closer to
the FISA limit of 110 km/h. The top drivers exceeded the limit almost
regularly, but FISA had given the organizers a 10 percent flexibility.
Combined with their dislike for the slower Group A cars, drivers were
highly critical of the organizers for artificially slowing the rally in
1987. A record 214 drivers signed up for the 1988 event and 200 were
qualified to start by the organizers. Albert II, Prince of Monaco arrived
to follow the event and was scheduled to drive a few stages in an ex-Alén
Lancia. In one of the tightest duels in the event's history, Toyota's Juha
Kankkunen led Lancia's Markku Alén by just two seconds after 33 of the 39
stages. Kankkunen's engine failed on the next stage, and Alén became the
first driver to win the same WRC round six times. As a taste of what was to
come, only two Finnish drivers made it into top ten. In 1989, Mikael
Ericsson of Sweden drove to victory as the first non-Finn in 18 years

This video is about another rally icon car: the Lancia Rally 037 Group B
This amazing rally car made its first participation in the 1982 World Rally
Championship season, at the Rally Costa Smeralda in Italy.
The last evolution of the car (1984) is moved by a supercharged 2.1 liter
4-cylinder engine which was able to produce around 320 bhp at 8000 rpm and
a max torque of 333 Nm at 5500 rpm.

Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it
races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the
"Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time,
Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to
claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th
birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching
the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in
the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill
Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of
all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a
Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent
extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface
on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel
than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of
their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's
race car helped push the driver forward.
