Driver’s View:

Another class for fans of amazing machines – the fabled Group B rally cars are always popular but there are also some interesting options for those who don’t want to run with the herd. As ever for an open class like this, finding the right balance of motor strength and handling is the top priority, with the option of either 2WD or 4WD being unique.
