Group B Rallying Is Back! Sort Of.

It may not be sanctioned by the FIA, but Group B Rallying is back in the UK, as more than 60 entrants have signed up for a competitive rally event taking place this August.

Evo magazine reports that an organization called “ Rallying with Group B” is organizing a road rally in the UK that aims to recreate “the passion and atmosphere” that brought us “…fire spitting monster rally cars…” that sounded amazing and killed spectators. Taking place over the weekend of August 25th-26th, the rally will visit sites around Cheshire, including the famous Oulton Park circuit. Time to cash in those frequent flyer miles.

    Ah, the long-awaited sequel: Return of the Killer-B's!

    Would be interesting to see how the old Group B cars stack up against the current crop of WRC cars.

      According to the embedded video (which is AWESOME if you have an hour to kill) modern day WRC cars are faster but not nearly as entertaining!

    For those of us with shallower pockets or family obligations, I hope that they will produce a DVD of the event. The sound alone would be worth the price. About once a year I get the jones for Group B on YouTube. Seeing the crowds part in front of a car like Moses handled the Red Sea is mesmerizing. THOSE were motorsports fans, insanity aside.
