what an amazing photo, documenting the insanity of those 80s WRC Group B events; where people were literally inches and feet away from the most amazing rally cars driving full-on through the crowds.  Everyone was brave; the drivers and the fans.   This is from the 1984 Portugal Rally.

i saw this post on Motoring Con Brio showing the Lancia Delta ECV2 Group S rally prototype, developed for the days following the ban of the legendary Group B rally class.

here’s the fascinating story of Audi’s ‘secret’ Group S prototype….a car even Audi/VW board members didn’t want to happen…..a mid engined, 1000hp rocketship, which obviously never made it to any form of completion due to regulatory changes in rally.  Enlarge these photos to read the fascinating story of the Group S ‘secret’ Quattro.
