No Crowd Control & High Power....

....it can only be group B. The 80's saw some of the fastest, uncontrollable and exciting rally cars to ever grace stages around the world. When you think of group B I'm sure Audi, Ford, Lancia, MG, and Peugeot instantly come to mind. Over time many other manufacturers entered rallying in this period that were either unsuccessful or arrived just too late. Group B was scrapped in 1986 by the FIA due to a number of spectator and driver deaths but let's not dwell and take a look at some of the cars that have been forgotten over time.

Toyota MR2 '222D' 1986
Opel Kadett 4S
 Citreon BX 4TC
Ferrari 308 GTB Michelotto
Lada Samara EVA
Mazda RX7
Daihatsu Charade DeTomaso 926 R
So there you go. A Brief history lesson about the cars that either just missed the group b era, or were never actually very good.
