The fastest girl ever - Michele Mouton
One day I saw Antti's tribute but I thought that he used very little
footage so I've decided to improve his work.
Michele Mouton is the best female driver ever and one of the best rally
drivers in history. She drove such monsters like killer B Audi Quattro S1
with 630HP, Peugeot 205 T16, Lancia Stratos and Fiat 131 Abarth Rally with
220HP and only rear wheel drive. Michelle had good results with all of
these cars. She is the first and only woman who won WRC rally, she is also
a former French and German rally champion. In 1985 Michelle estabilished
Pikes Peak hillclimb race record, driving Audi Sportquattro.
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.

Audi S1 crash by Michelle Mouton @ Race of Champions 2010 (HD)
Michelle Mouton dreht einige Showrunden im Audi S1 beim Race of Champions
2010 in Düsseldorf. Plötzlich hebt die linke Seite über dem Curb ab und
das Auto überschlägt sich. Zum Glück ist niemandem etwas passiert und
das Auto blieb auch fast heile...
Mit einem Subaru-Boxer mit tiefem Schwerpunkt wäre das nicht passiert ;-)
