    unfortunately Group B was too badass and had to be put down just 4 short years after its inception :(

    the creator of that video really summed it up best
    im sad that i missed it... because nothing will ever compare to it again
    factory backed cars with unlimited budgets and unlimited power, being piloted by the most skilled and ballsiest drivers to ever sit behind a wheel, on the most amazingly raw courses that could be imagined, all for the fans who without question were the craziest creatures on the planet

    heres some more Group B goodness
    YouTube - Pure Group B Supercars with pure engine sounds


    here is a site with a lot of info on Group B... its a good place to start looking if you are interested in this history
    The Group B rally cars - Home Page

    this site has some good info on the cars
    Group B Rally - Home

    and ive already posted 2 of this guy's videos... but seriously his youtube channel has some of the best rally footage available on the internet
    YouTube - amjayes's Channel

    because the corners are where the action and excitement is
    because if given the open opportunity to be as close to and on occasion actually IN the action... people will take it

    this past summer i was at a race at my local road course and found that there is a new area that can be accessed... it puts you on the outside edge of a downhill corner about 3 ft from the cars as they pass by at full tilt... now this is on tarmac... but i will say that having those cars fly by at 100+MPH just a few feet from you... being able to feel the air as they go by... having your ears literally hurt from the sound... feeling your bones vibrating from the vibration of the exhaust note... it was one of the most exhilarating feelings ever...
    and im sure that knowing in the back of your head that if something went wrong, it would not likely end well for you adds to the endorphin rush just a bit ;)

    Limerock, correct? If it is I know the spot you are talking about. Since they re-did the track last year the back section is so much more entertaining than the front straight or the esses. My favorite spot is the new chicane after the uphill and then the back straight.

    I have a softspot for the delta s4, I got to drive one, unfortunately it was in the rain so it wasn't as much fun as I could have had. It's about as fast as a sportsbike. :D

    A mother is suing the driver and organizers of the California 200 event.

    I think I'll walk in the middle of a police shootout and sue everyone after I get shot.
