Collection of Group B Cars Back in Action...

 Over in England a number of classic Group B rally cars got together for some good asphalt flogging.

From Audis to Nissans all had a notable history behind them.  The Nissan 240RS interests me the most and it was still set up for gravel vs. tarmac and must have been a handful.  The 240RS is actually a ride that the English reggae/pop band UB40, famous over here for their hit "Red, Red Wine", sponsored in the 1980's.  One of the band's managers has recently purchased the vehicle and is treating it properly--getting it out on the road where it belongs.  Former Michelle Mouton, John Buffum, and Stig Blomqvist cars were also present with some of their American livery (1000 Lakes Rally and Pikes Peak).  More at the link below.
