Audi Quattro - Group B, the Days of Madness

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.

Einmal im Jahr geht es am Pikes Peak rund. Die bewegte Geschichte des "Race to the Clouds". In den Hauptrollen: Walter Röhrl und der Audi Sport Quattro S1 beim Pikes Peak.
S1 Pikes Peak: Härtetest in der Höhenkammer
Das 600 PS starke „Monster" befindet sich mitten im Training. Schließlich muss der S1 topfit sein, wenn er in knapp zehn Wochen den über 4.000 Meter hohen Pikes Peak erklimmen soll. Für das Audi Team heißt das: viel Arbeit. Denn der Rennbolide muss erst einmal auf Vordermann gebracht werden. Heute testen Thomas Bauch und Frank Friedmann vom Audi Sport Team den S1 in der Höhenkammer. Dabei wird die Fahrt auf über 4.000 Höhenmetern simuliert, wenn die Luft langsam knapp wird. Das geht auch an dem Audi Sport quattro S1 Pikes Peak nicht spurlos vorbei. Wir zeigen Ihnen, ob der Rennbolide den Härtetest in der Höhenkammer besteht.
