" Of all the racing formulas that produced stunning race cars, Group 5 is one of our favourites. And this BMW 320 Turbo is a fave among faves. The formula, which was in its deregulated niceness, was almost the precursor of Group B "
Walter Rohrl and the Ballet of the Quattro.
Not sure whether or not we’ve posted this before or whether you’ve seen it: but this edit is one of our favourite clips of all time.
We love the teutonic coolness of the navigator’s voice (though it obviously wasn’t recorded in-car). We love the simple cutaways to Walter’s blue suede shoes, the steering wheel and the page turning navigator book (though they probably weren’t shot at speed).
But mostly we love the point of view madness that illustrates the divine lunacy of Group B rally – and which ultimately resulted in the formula’s early demise.
