Um, this is what I meant...
I remember the Escorts. We had a different model here. The looked kind of
similar, but you guys got the GOOD looking one!
Gruppe B..the Killer B's. They cancelled for what, one year? Two years?
Killing off your spectators is NOT a good way to advance your sport!
Kinda like 'football' (soccer) or Rugby.
I remember watching a race from Spain and a car went off the road, into
the crowd, running over a Mother and her 12 YO son, killing the boy. Can't
remember the driver; if I said the name you'd know it.
Poor kid probably bugged his Mom for hours or days to get her to take him...
the RS200's were group B cars, and thus only made 82-84, I think.
Thats pretty much the entire time period for all the group B rally
cars, although the 6R4 was made until 85, iirc, because of the success
of the baby 250hp version in club-level rallyin.
they didn't look that good in 71-72 when they first came out.
Thats the risk that goes with every Rally, even nowadays. One of the
hardest parts too, because you have to ignore the spectators and hope
they WILL get out of the way in timeYou watch the covereage of some of
the WRC races now, and you'll see that sometimes the cars miss the
photorgaphers by a foot or two, as the guys scampering back to the
bank, after taking a head-on shot. It really does take all your nerve
to keep going, and not stop through sheer instinct to avoid 'possibly
WE all did (well, mine was more along the lines of 'can i be your
co-driver this time')
Rust was first visible in feb. Easy to remember, since i noticed it in
the road outside my house, and it was whilst we were moving.
Well, assumingits galvanised and painted right. But with all the
shakeups at all ifferent levels of the corp, the financial switching
arond and so forth, you'd be amazed. Amazing what you find out when a
reletive owns a company that supplies toyotas metal (or rather did,
and never got paid for it, and has been trying to get payment via the
courts for 5 years)
yes.. As i suspected, no clue, thinking google knows all and searches
all. So, in reality, you searched only the most public 10% of the web,
and are surprised to find no documents to an upcomming court case. As
I said, if you had any chance of being able to read the documents,
you'd be able to find them. Or, to spell that out in simpler language
for you, If you have either a) the ability to find the documents
through research, checking and deduction, OR if you had access to the
appropriate search engines for the task, then you'd be able to read
the,. A single search on google shows no effort, ability, or
Unlike you, i did some followup checking (which you were too lazy to
do) and i found the poster K`Tetch listed on the court documents,
having some ties to the case (under his real name, which about 20
minutes work found me.
Tis amazing what you can do when you actually a) have a brain and b)
