I wish Group B is back.

Discussion in '1985 Peugeot 205 T16 Group B' started by Tommy kaira, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. Group B is the most powerful car in WRC. But because of the safety reasons, Group B is erased from the world rally event. Nowdays safety technolgy has improved better. I hope that Group B competition will be held again

    Excuse me, but why do you want the group B to be back? The current WRC cars are significantly faster and more important: safer! I agree that the group B era was a great period in rallying, despite the tragical accidents. I think it's a pity that it's not obligatory for the factorys to build a minimum number of street cars, directly derived from the rally cars, like back then.

    Dear Pedern,

    Here is another view of your "garage", and an explanation of what the hell is it.


    LE CONSERVATORE - THE ARCHIVE OF CITROENS

    Le Conservatoire is the showcase of the Brand's heritage, in Aulnay-sous-Bois. The centre houses more than 300 Citroen models, together with a vast quantity of documentation. The role of Le Conservatoire is fundamentally different to that of a museum, since it will not be open to the public. It has been set up to house and maintain examples of the vehicles produced by Citroen since its founding up to the present day, and to manage the Brand's archives in their entirety.

    There seems to be vintage racing Citroens too. Some racing Visa's and BX 4TC versions and the BX Super Tourisme can be seen from the photos.

    For the high res pic click here!

    PS: Personally I don't like the BX, but it's LOL to see your reaction. Anyway is a Group B car and deserve my respect because this car also belongs to the legend.

    No, I'm from Argentina.
     
  16. Re: I wish Group B is back.

    Ok! I'm from Norway!! We acctualy try to get a WRC rally up here! The rally Finnskog! Maybe already in 2005!! Looking forward to that! Have been on every Sweedish rally the last 5 years!!! Love it!<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: I wish Group B is back.

    I'm sure you deserve it, but in Scandinavia you also have 2 WRC races!!!!

    In the hole American continent we only have one... Argentina (and I don't know for how much time)
     
  18. Re: I wish Group B is back.

    It costs realy much for the teams to compete in the U.S! I love the Argentin rally, so it had been a shame if they cut it out!<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. Re: I wish Group B is back.

    The Mexican Rally is pushing to welcome the WRC and I think FIA only want one american rally per year.

    In Europe, Germany it's also pushing to be WRC.
     
  20. Re: I wish Group B is back.

    someone posted that modern wrc cars are faster? how is this possible. a modern wrc car has less horsepower and weighs (i think) about the same? inform me of how this works. is it the complexity of awd systems or something that allows these cars to accelerate so quickly? or is it simply their geared more aggressively in 1-4 gears since they never approach top speed anyways.?
     
  21. Re: I wish Group B is back.

    Hmm, I doubt modern day WRC's would be able to beat Group B's on, say, a race track, in hill climbing or even on the types of stages rallied in the Group B days - Group B's have just got to much of an horsepower advantage.

    WRC's would win on a modern day rally though. Stages these days are narrower and twistier than in the 80's and WRC's are light years ahead of Group B's in terms of handling and suspension.
     
  22. i think they would be able to beat a group B rally carin any circumstances. The technology has come along way since the mid 80's and its not all about HP.
