    Was only jesting. Like the music genres I have lived through feel blessed to have witnessed rallying in all its great formats so looking forward to the next era even if its milk floats with aero!

The Gr.B cars weren't very impressive on asphalt, often quite the opposite, they were overpowered but ridiculously clumsy. On the other hand the gr.A cars of the early 90' were likely the most spectacular cars on asphalt ever, at least for me.

    Defending the Group B corner, they didn't look that shabby on tarmac considering the 7-8 years of development between the two videos

    Yep, every WRC era has been fantastic and it’s hard to choose the best one; I’ve started following Portugal Rally in the early 80’s and it’s impossible to forget those initial memories, with top drivers like Rohrl, Alen, Mikkola, Therier and so many others giving an amazing show in the last rwd works cars (and the initial 4wd one, the Quattro). Probably the last Gr.2/4 and the first Gr.B generations are still my favourites, but I’ve no complaints on current WRC cars: they’re truly amazing to watch!

    Don’t forget the 911! Althougth mainly entered by private teams, the 911 Gr.4 versions were always competitive (mainly on tarmac) and a delight to watch. Hearing the flat 6 roaring in the forest long before Thérier wild slides become visible was a mind blowing experience! Here’s a taste of it: https://youtu.be/ALrrlhQfVfA?t=265
