The fourth of five. This time we look at the Ford RS200.
If you haven’t heard where these images come from yet they are the product of a Spanish trip by Richard Heseltine and photographer Lyndon McNeill. There they met 1980s Spanish hillclimb champion Teo Martin and selected some of his car collection – the Group B cars – to photograph. Also under Martin’s ownership are circuit and touring racers (the final total comes in at 80!). For now, though, here’s the RS200. We have previously featured an Audi S1, a Lancia Delta S4 and an MG Metro 6R4.
There’s a full Group B celebration in the current magazine in honour of the 30th anniversary of the era’s demise.
Engine: mid-mounted 1.8-litre Cosworth turbo BDT ‘four’
Result of note for the RS200: Malcolm Wilson claiming a debut win for the RS200 on the 1985 Marlboro Lindisfarne Rally
