    PS Are you related to or perhaps the man himself whose foray in to F1 was so short lived?[/QUOTE]

    I assume you are referring to Dave Richards of Prodrive fame. I wish I were related: I might be able to touch him for a few bob now and then!

    They were genuinely awesome.

    What about the group B cars - the Metro 6R4 - similar engine to the XJ220 in a roller skate. Nice.

    And none of these Toyota Prius engines they use in the F1 yawnathon (if I want a snooze on a Sunday afternoon, I know just the thing)

    Sorry, I did mean Group B: The short wheelbase Quattro spitting fire through the forests, the Stratos and the 6R4 were all wonderful to watch!

    Group 1/B - effectively the same I think - little more than a name change.
