JAY AUGER – website owner, editor, author
I first started the Rally Group B Shrine as a side project on my personal blog in 2014. Two years later it became its own website dedicated to preserving Group B history. For me the passion began in 1986 after seeing my first Group B rally car. That event changed my life and is solely responsible for my love of cars and rallying. I have since become a published author by providing articles to auto magazines of renown.

BILL MUNRO – expert contributor*
Bill is the author of the upcoming book “Traction For Sale” about the history of the pioneers in four wheel drive systems; Harry Ferguson Research Ltd and FF Developments Ltd. Their famed viscous couplings were utilised by most of the top Group B cars. Bill is the Shrine’s go-to expert for explanation of these complex systems and was instrumental in helping with the Opel Manta 4WD prototype article.
JOHN WHEELER – expert contributor*
Mr. Wheeler needs little introduction as he is one of the main characters responsible for the making of the Ford RS200 legendary Group B icon. John has helped the Shrine by providing key information about his unique and amazing “Group S” RS200 creation.
Everyone at the Rally Group B Shrine wishes to thank all published authors that have worked towards preserving the history of Group B in some shape or form. This website would not exist or be as complete if we didn’t have their work as a daily reminder. We would like to personally thank Graham Robson, Mike Moreton, John Davenport, Reinhard Klein, Vittorio Roberti, Luca Gastaldi, Bill Munro, plus the collective work of Motor Sport Magazine and Auto Moto and Sport Magazine.
Our best regards are also sent to our various information contributors that have helped the Shrine along since its creation!
