This is just crazy.
Insane how there weren't scores of people dead every rally.
In some other-universe situation where I was able to drive a Group B car that fast I just don't think I'd be able to keep my foot in with crowds of people running off the course as I approached. The levels of insanity required from everybody involved are just incredible.
I just randomly came across these guys on Instagram. A Lexus IS350 Rally car belonging to a team called River City Rally. The compete primarily in the ARA Championship.
@PJTierney , I know Dirt 5 hasn't even launched yet, but any chance you can put a bug in Codie's ear to add this thing as DLC?
R-GT is basically the modern day Group B. It’s all GT4 cars and their equivalents. 911 Cups, Abarth 124s, Lotus Exiges, Alpine A110s, with special dispensation for individual cars if they don’t meet the exact regulations. 2wd only class, with no power limit. Bloody shame it’s not more popular, I think it’s not because the FIA only officially sanctions tarmac rallies to the class and really doesn’t promote it at all.
Here's another unlikely rally car. 1985 BMW 635CSi raced by the Spain-based Saurmann team.
From the 1999 Nurburgring 24 Hours:
I have no more information on this other than:
1976 March 761 on Snow/Ice tires at GP ice race
Tommy Riggins appears to have built several of these Buick Somersets for himself and other drivers for the IMSA AAC series between 1985 and 1987. The cars continued to race through at least 1989. The original Somerset was a little crapcar, so it's fun to see it turned into something badass like this.
I was actually at the F1 event and saw that Celebrity race that year.
Pikes Peak Gillet Vertigo, powered by a 2.0L I4 making 380hp, weighing only 925kg.
