Book Group 4 – From Stratos to Quattro

 

Most fans still have fond memories of rallying in the 1970s. It was a time when heroes like
Walter Röhrl, Sandro Munari and Hannu Mikkola were driving in full drifts with opposite lock
and when the Stratos filled whole valleys with its unique sound. The great years of Group 4
supremacy were spectacular, adventurous, and in retrospect more than just a little crazy.
Just remember the 700 km marathon stage on the Rallye du Maroc or the early New Zealand
rallies stretching over seven days and five nights.

In the first years after its foundation in 1973, the World Rally Championship was extremely
diverse, and that did not only account for the events. A dozen or so manufacturers built cars
that were able to win WRC rallies. Group 4 saw sports cars like Alpines, Stratoses and Porsche
911s compete against saloons like the Ford Escort, Opel Kadett or Fiat 131 with the Japanese
companies of Toyota and Datsun also joining the game. Until finally the revolutionary Quattro
came and took rallying to the next level.

In the book “Group 4 – From Stratos to Quattro”, authors John Davenport and Reinhard Klein
review this unforgotten era. Both have been highly involved in rallying during the Group 4
years. Davenport was co-driver, journalist and later team manager while Klein made his mark
as one of the best rally photographers in the world. In this well-researched work, the authors
describe the history of the legendary rally cars of the Group 4 era in detail. They review the
first WRC years from 1973 to 1982 and tell some stories from that wild and tough era.
