Too Fast To Race: Group B Rally

As you know we are big fans of Group B Rally, it's what we grew up with.  In the mid 1980's when we were in high school, ESPN would show WRC and U.S. Rally Racing, as hard as that seems to believe in this day and age.

The Group B cars were turly monsters in their days, 5-800 horsepower was not unheard of, and much of the technology from the turbo Formula 1 cars made their way in to rally racing.  It came to an end at the end of the 80's though as the cars became to fast, there were a few to many fatalities of drivers and spectators, so this shining moment of racing came to an end.

We found this series on YouTube and thought we would share it with you, it's a documentry, broken up into seven sections to show you this history of this great series.

Rally Car Orgasm

As we have said before, we are fans of old school Group B and Group A cars, we thought we'd give you a bit of a treat as we approach Christmas three video's where you will need to crank the sound up as loud as you can.

We will start with the 1977 Lombard Rally, go to the "Group B Monsters" and finish off with a tribute to Colin McRae, who was recently voted by Motorsports News as the "Greatest Motorsport Hero of all time"

Thanks to amjayes's YouTube Channel for some of this great content.
