04/20/2018 – TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES ***UPDATE***
Dear website users,
There’s recently been some changes made to the Rally Group B Shrine format which has broken some links to the website’s pages. This mostly affected the GROUP B CARS section. As such, if you were referred to the website via a search engine then you most likely ended up in a “not found / search” page. If you still experience any of these difficulties then please manually select your topic via the website’s menu above or use the search box to type in the name of the car you are looking for.
The issue will eventually resolve itself when search engines will re-crawl the website and sitemap. We apologise for the inconvenience!
2018 FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN – IMPORTANT!
Since 2014, the Rally Group B Shrine is entirely dedicated to correctly preserve the history of the motorsport of rallying’s “Golden Era” (1982~1986) and keep it alive through education; unhyped, unbiased. The end goal is to provide an “official” online encyclopedia of the period so that the knowledge and stories of the people involved in Group B are never lost to time. The website currently features 170+ pages of information and is still expanding. You can easily browse the “encyclopedia of knowledge” by using the menu bar above (PC), or by clicking on the top right menu tab ≡ (mobile). Even long time fans of Group B will learn something new here!
The Shrine is NOT a for-profit (commercial) operation hence it must rely on advertising and personal donations to help pay the yearly website hosting fees and its operations. If you enjoy the website then I invite you to donate so that it can remain online, free to all. No amount will be too small. Your help will fund the Shrine’s interminable work; past, present, and future!
The amount shown in the thermometer represents the minimum personal donations required per year, but feel free to make it burst! If every visitor donated a single unit of their currency (1 £/€/$) every year then the Shrine would have the necessary funds to fulfil its mission by going to meet as much of the people who were behind Group B’s history to get as much data as possible, write articles, features, and give them a well-deserved legacy. Oh, and the website would be ad-free, too!
Please support the Shrine via the PayPal donation system (click).
ALTERNATIVES TO THE FUNDING CAMPAIGN
While donations are preferred, here are various ways in which you can also help;
- Purchase books from the Group B book store. The Shrine earns a small commission on each sale from the BookDepository.com.
- Purchase DVDs, Blu-Rays, or Downloads from the Group B Video Store. While no sale commissions are earned from DukeVideo.com, supporting them and other partners such as Pacenotes Rally Magazine and RS Motorsport will keep them advertising on the website!
- Purchase articles from the Shrine to complement your publishing needs such as for automotive magazines. Please use this CONTACT FORM to inquire.
- Browsing to the very bottom of every page will make more advertisements appear on your screen (you don’t even have to look at them or click them if you don’t want to). The Shrine earns a tiny amount of revenue for each ad displayed. This costs you only a second or two of your time!
- Sharing the Shrine’s existence through social media or word of mouth will increase all of the above! As always, please do not steal any material from the website, and do support your local historical rally organisations!
I wish to thank every person that supported the Shrine since its beginning, whatever the means. You can expect the work to continue on with the same level of dedication as the team grows.
