Title: Group A – When Rallying created Road Car Icons 1987-1996 Author: John Davenport & Reinhard Klein Publisher: McKlein Publishing Year: 2019 Sites: 256 Pictures and illustrations: ca. 450 in colour and black-and-white Format/Size: 24.5 x 30 cm, hardcover Language: english Content: After several fatal accidents in 1986, Group B cars were banned from rallying and Group A – tuned road cars with a minimum production of 5,000 examples became the top formula in the sport. The early years saw an almost complete domination by Lancia, before Toyota became their first proper competitor. In later years, Mitsubishi, Ford and Subaru joined Toyota as key players, each with cars based on four-wheel drive, turbocharged special editions of their mass production vehicles. The new McKlein book, “Group A – When Rallying created Road Car Icons”, covers the ten years from 1987 to 1996. It gives an overview of the major events, the leading cars and crews, the factory teams, the changes of regulations – both technical and sporting – as well as results plus many stories of incidents and occurrences. The books are lavishly illustrated with photographs from the famous McKlein archive. Post-war international rallying has been in a state of almost constant evolution for the last seventy years. The cars have changed as have the rallies and the crews that contest them. This evolutionary process has been catalogued in a series of rally books from McKlein of which three have already been published under the titles “Group 2 – the Genesis of World Rallying”, “Group 4 – from Stratos to Quattro” and “Group B - the Rise and Fall of Rallying’s Wildest Cars”. These volumes cover a period from 1946 to 1986 and are now joined by the Group A book to extend that coverage up to 1996. ISBN: 9783947156207 Condition: New
