Group B.... R.I.P.

First I must apologize for the lack of updates lately. Between the holidays and a very serious bout with bronchitis I have been down and out. Rest assure work continues on Camp4lo. We are continuing to pursue the goal and are getting closer and closer.

Group B was a class that only lasted a few years but provided much excitement for the fans. Perhaps too much. When did they close a class of race cars because they were too fast? I digress.

From Wikipedia.
The Group B referred to a set of regulations introduced in 1982 for competition vehicles in sportscar racing and rallying regulated by the FIA. The Group B regulations fostered some of the quickest, most powerful and sophisticated rally cars ever built. However, a series of major accidents, some fatal, were blamed on their outright speed. After the death of Henri Toivonen and his co-driver in the 1986 Tour de Corse, the FIA disestablished the class after four years. The short-lived Group B era has acquired legendary status among rally fans.
