FATAL RALLY CAR

Discussion in '1985 Ford RS200' started by Homero, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. I think this is a beutiful car and was very good in Rallycross.

    But in the World Rally Championship never won a race. It was an "unlucky-fatal car".

    The rally pilots did confess that it was very hard to control. And the prove was the RS200 took part in two of the fatal accidents that decided FIA to ban the "Group B".

    1) In March 1986, the Portuguese driver Joaquin Santos loose control of his Ford RS200 in the Portugal Rally. He kill three spectators and serious hurt 28 more. The official teams decided to retire of the rally.

    2) In September 1986 Formula One driver Marc Surer ended his professional career when he crashed his Ford RS200 on the Hessen Rally in Germany. The tragedy cost the life of his co-driver. He has recovered from serious burns.

  3. Actually there were three settings for the Group-B rally car:

    345hp

    475hp

    650hp

    Depending on layout of the stages and road surface, the different settings were used accordingly.
