The Return of Group B is the theme for this year's Eifel Rallye Festival (July 21-23, 2016) and it will almost certainly be the biggest collection of Group B cars in one place since this category was banned from international rallying in 1986. "Already we have fifty-five Group B and Group S cars confirmed that will attend the Eifel Rallye Festival.
Lancia Delta Integrale 16V - 1991, Gr. A - Christophe Schmitz/Ina Lotz
This Integrale has been re-built completely after an accident back in 1994. Then it was used in two more rallies before it was parked in a garage in 1999. Now the original car from the 1991 Catalunya Rally is revived for the 2014 Eifel Rallye Festival in its Marlboro colours. Mehr >
Opel Ascona 400 - 1981, Gr. 4 - Christian Mayenfels/Sofie Mayenfels
Christian Mayenfels used to rally this Ascona 400 between 1987 and 1989 in local events in Germany until he sold the car. Than in 2008, by chance, this Opel was offered to him including the German logbook still carrying his mothers name as a first owner and he just had to have it back. Mehr >
Mercedes 300 SE - 1963, Gr. 2 - Thomas Kübler/Max Hunzinger
This 300SE was converted into a racing car by one of the very first AMG dealers and it already got its FIA homologation in 1965. Even today, the enormous tuning skills of AMG can be seen on the hand-made injection tubes of this car which is still very close to the original. Mehr >
