This Footage From The 1980's Is Terrifying
This onboard footage from a rally race in the mid-80s shows spectators standing incredibly close to the road, only just leaping out of the way as driver Walter Röhrl comes screaming past at scary speeds in his Audi Sport Quattro S1.
In the 1980s de-regulation in some European countries opened the way for these crazy ‘Group B’ races, with some of the most exciting cars ever to hit the motorsport scene. Eventually the Group B races were banned because of both driver and spectator deaths. Nothing like it has ever happened since.
