    I made a small survey about which past and future rally classes you prefer. I would be fun to get as much data as possible so please drop a reply. It's anonymous and it's voluntary to reply your age and location

    Glad it's anonymous, I don't want anyone to know I cannot choose between group A and group B.

    reminder that this poll was created by someone who considered the time when the best motorsport driver of all times competed was boring...

    laughing stock fans creating polls about a sport that follow depending if their favorite kid is winning or not.

    I hear you. I mean, I wouldn't want anyone to know that I don't know the difference.

    My Group A vs Group B poll has ended. I had 208 replies, thank you everyone. Firstly, here are the main results. Group A won slightly, and majority wants current WRC cars to continue with only 24.5% hoping for R5 cars. '

    Like expected, the popularity of R5 for the main class was over double greater among Group A fans (38%) than among Group B fans (18.4%). Age-wise, it seems that 20-39 year old fans prefer Group A more, whereas the youngest and oldest fans prefer Group B.

    The three countries giving the most replies were Finland, United Kingdom and New Zealand. Finns seem to like Group B more, Kiwis Group A and Brits both evenly.

    FIN Group B 48.8% Group A 25.6%
    GB Group B 44% Group A 44%
    NZ Group B 33% Group A 51.3%

    As for the opinions for the future category, almost all Finns and over half of Brits want to continue with current WRC cars, whereas over half of Kiwis are convinced with R5.

    FIN WRC2017 79.1% R5 16,3%
    GB WRC2017 52% R5 32%
    NZ WRC2017 35.9 % R5 59%

    The country-based results seem to have a clear correlation. If you liked Group B, you like also the current WRC cars, and if you liked Group A, you would rather see R5 as the main class.

    Hehe, I am kind of exception from the rule as it seems. I have prefered gr.A over gr.B but absolutely prefer the current WRC to stay the top class over the R5.

    I have voted mainly according to the spectacle (in my eyes of course) and the reason why I like the Gr.A cars more than Gr.B is that I'm from an asphalt country. 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.

    Same for me Mirek Although I'm too young to have seen the group B and group A days.

    Now if you had gone back to Group 4 then I trust the results would have been even more interesting but probably I'm in a minority that remembers that era!

    Circa 95 era was a great time to be watching Group A machines on both gravel and tar as they looked like cars you could own but sounded great and the transmission/handbrake tech allowed for slides round hairpins where their Group B counterparts would shuffle.

    I had to keep it simple. There's even now quite much data to crunch. Besides, I was only trying to make deeper the Group A vs Group B polls presented by The Gravel Crew and Gary Boyd.
