Group B Worship: Ford RS200 and Audi Sport Quattro - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
To enter Group B in the 1980s, car makers had to build 200 road-going examples of the car they intended to rally. These rules created some of the most spectacular road cars of all time. I love rallying: the chance to drive an RS200 and a Sport Quattro nearly sent me to the nut-house. Fire up the Quattro!

Audi Quattro - Group B, the Days of Madness
Credits for this video: www.youtube.com/amjayes
Group B was introduced by the FIA in 1982 as replacement for both Group 4
(modified grand touring) and Group 5 (touring prototypes) cars.
Group A referred to production-derived vehicles limited in terms of power,
weight, allowed technology and overall cost. The base model had to be mass
produced (5000 units/year) and had to have 4 seats. Group A was aimed at
ensuring a large number of privately-owned entries in races.
By contrast, Group B had few restrictions on technology, design and the
number of cars required for homologation to compete—200, less than other
series. Weight was kept as low as possible, high-tech materials were
permitted, and there were no restrictions on Boost, which turned out to mean almost
unlimited power. The category was aimed at car manufacturers by promising
outright competition victories and the subsequent publicity opportunities
without the need for an existing production model. There was also a Group
C, which had a similarly lax approach to chassis and engine development,
but with strict rules on overall weight and maximum fuel load.
Group B was initially a very successful concept, with many manufacturers
joining the premier World Rally Championship, and increased spectator
numbers. But the cost of competing quickly rose, and the performance of the
cars proved too much, resulting in a series of fatal crashes. As a
consequence Group B was cancelled at the end of 1986 and Group A
regulations became the standard for all cars until the advent of World
Rally Cars in 1997.
In the following years Group B found a niche in the European Rallycross
Championship, with cars such as the MG Metro 6R4 and the Ford RS200
competing as late as 1992. For 1993, the FIA replaced the Group B models
with prototypes that had to be based on existing Group A cars, but still
followed the spirit of Group B, with low weight, 4WD, high turboBoost
pressure and staggering amounts of power.

The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand
Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris
Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren
Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps
the definition of the modern day hypercar.
Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the
pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past
15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.
Lancia Stratos replica: is the Lister Bell STR kitcar better than the real thing?
The Lancia Stratos was a supercar like no other, but with just 492 built,
values are vast. So what if you could get then Stratos look, sound and pace
for £30k? Step forward Lister Bell STR kit car.

If there's one kit car capable of leaving us besotted, it's the Lister Bell
STR, a newly developed Lancia Stratos replica that is exquisitely put
together. The appearance is bang on, the attention to detail is
superb...and the driving position is better than the original's. Power
comes from a 2.5-litre Alfa Romeo V6, which makes the right noises and,
with about 190bhp, the right amount of shove. It steers and handles really
sweetly, too. That you could put a lovely one together yourself for less
than £30,000, or have a turn-key car for not much over £40,000, sent a
lot of our staffers away to examine their finances.

Is the Mazda MX-5 Any Good? - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris has been known to not like the Mazda MX-5, even calling it
dirty words in an article a few years back. Now he gets to support his
point by swapping his Ferrari 599 with Cameraman and Editor Neil Carey's NA
Mazda MX-5. Was Chris wrong a few years ago?
