Bring back Group B rally

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Group B rally regulations (1982-86) allowed for the most spectacular rally cars, and maximized the limits of engineering. This class of rally racing ended after a series of incidents. However, with today's technology and lessons from the past, these safety issues can be resolved, and Group B can return once again.

Rally represents liberty, and inspires us to explore the land that nature gave us. The New Physiocratic League supports the return of Group B.


Wiki Entry:

Group B was a set of regulations introduced in 1982 for competition vehicles in sportscar racing and rallying regulated by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The Group B regulations fostered some of the fastest, most powerful, and most sophisticated rally cars ever built and is commonly referred to as the golden era of rallying. However, a series of major accidents, some of them fatal, were blamed on their outright speed and lack of crowd control at events. After the death of Henri Toivonen and his co-driver Sergio Cresto in the 1986 Tour de Corse, the FIA disestablished the class, dropped its previous plans to replace it by Group S, and instead replaced it as the top-line formula by Group A. The short-lived Group B era has acquired legendary status among rally fans and automobile enthusiasts in general.
