Group B Rallying: All-Terrain Monsters

July 4, 2012 by Matt

If you have an hour to spare and consider yourself any kind of motorsport enthusiast, you owe to yourself to sit through the documentary above. It offers a brief overview of the sport of rally racing in general before focusing on the ’82-’86 Group B era, featuring a class of race cars among the most electrifying ever built. From the early domination of the Audi Quattro to the mid-era success of the Peugeot 205 T16 through to the competition-crushing Lancia Delta S4, the clip resurrects tons of archival footage and showcases beautiful in-action and static views of each car. Less renown Group B racers such as the Ford RS200 and MG Metro 6R4 even get airtime, along with sports car entrants like the Ferrari 288 GTO and Porsche 959. It’s amazingly well-produced and comprehensive documentary. Watch it if you have a chance.
