Group B Day 15th February - CANCELLED

Postby stephendell » Fri Feb 07, 2014 5:56 pm

We have just received an invite to the Curborough event on 15th February:

GBRL PRESS RELEASE 29/01/2014
Curborough Sprint Course - Saturday 15th February 2014

“To preserve, celebrate and demonstrate all aspects of the Group B Era, focusing on originality, the personalities involved, history and the legacy it created and displaying vehicles in a totally honest and unambiguous manner ”.

Group B Rallying Legends ran their inaugural event last year at Curborough to much acclaim and are running it again this year at Curborough on the 15th February.

Whilst the focus of the day is to gather together fantastic Ex-Works rally cars and period clubman cars and demonstrate them to the public GBRL recognise that the Group B rules from 1982 – 1986 meant that cars had to be homologated directly into Group B , requiring 200 example cars to be built , or transferred in from previous homologation groups such as Group 4. This resulted in a number of rare and unusual road cars.

GBRL would like to invite anyone owning these cars to join in and bring along their car to display at Curborough. We would like to get as many of these fabulous cars, both competition and road cars, together to celebrate this remarkable period in rallying history.

You may not even realise that your car was homologated into Group B. Below is a list of some of the more popular ones :

Alpine A110, A310, GTA / Audi Quattro / Austin MG Metro 6R4 / BL Triumph TR8 / BMW M1 / Citroen Visa Chrono, Trophee, Milles Pistes, BX4TC / De Tomaso Pantera / Ferrari 308 GTB, 288GTO / FIAT 124 spyder, Abarth 131 Rally, X19 / Ford Escort RS, Escort RS 1600, Escort RS 2000, Escort RS Turbo, RS200, Sierra Cosworth RS / FSO Polonez 2000 / Fuji Subaru XT 4WD Turbo AX / Lancia Rally 151 ARO, Delta S4 / Matra Bagheera / Mazda Savannah RX-7 / Mitsubishi Lancer 2000 Turbo / Nissan 240RS, Datsun Sports 240Z, Datsun Sunny Pickup B120 / Opel Ascona 400, Manta 200, Manta 400 / Peugeot 104ZS, 205 Turbo 16, 504 V6 Coupe, 504 Pick-up / Porsche 911 Carrera, 911 SC, 911 SCRS, 911 Turbo, 924 Carrera GT / Renault 5 Turbo, Turbo 2, Turbo Maxi / SEAT 124 Especial 2000, Fura Crono, Ibiza, Ritmo Crono / Skoda 130LR / Talbot Matra Murena, Samba Rallye, Sunbeam Lotus / Toyota Celica Twin Cam Turbo / Vauxhall Astra GTE , Chevette HS 2300 / Lada VFTS .

Please be aware that only genuine, original cars will be permitted into the event. The cost to display your car is £10 (which admits the car and two people).

So why not join possibly the largest gathering of original, genuine Group B cars since the 1980’s ? Click here to view GBRL motorsport action from 2013.

some bizzare and unexpected cars in that list.... how could, for example, a 110, production ended, when? 1973? be homologated into a 1982 rule book? Not saying they were not but needs a bit more explaining. Maybe there was some sort of "grandfathering" clause but if so its the first I have heard of it.
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Panorama blue (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.

URGENT GBRL PRESS RELEASE 11/04/2014 @ 21.00 Hours





SATURDAY 15TH FEBRUARY CURBOROUGH EVENT - CANCELLED



Please see attached letter from Shenstone & District Car Club formally cancelling the above GBRL Event and the usage of the Curborough Sprint Circuit on Saturday 15th February 2014



This decision has been made by the Curborough Circuit Management due to the severe & continued flooding of the Paddock – Spectator and Public Parking Areas.



After lengthy discussions the final decision to cancel the forthcoming event has been made tonight at 19.00 hours not just on the damage that could be caused to the circuit by the flooding but equally importantly on the grounds of Health & Safety for the Entrants & Spectators alike…



We can only but apologise for the inconvenience cased to you all but great fully appreciate your support and understanding of this decision.



GBRL will arrange an alternative date, shortly.





For those who have purchased spectator tickets via our on-line ticketing services, 100% refunds will be issued immediately through PayPal and this takes 5-7 days to process, as per Eventbrite standard policy

Off the top on my head I'd say it ended in 76 but it could have been 77.
